What Bert Has To Say About Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway Metro Area

Little Rock is the steady but unremarkable capital of Arkansas. Typical of mid-America, the downtown area is laid out on a rectangular grid with mostly average modern architecture, a sprinkling of older historic structures, and a waterfront park along the Arkansas River. North Little Rock is a growing, business-friendly and mainly progressive middle class center across the river.
