Heifer International Center Green Building. It has rather an unusual architecture. It was designed to be `green` or environmental friendly.

 

It is using small amounts of energy, due to the fact that it is made almost entirely of glass, letting the natural light inside. The address where visitors can satisfy their curiosity about this building is 1 World Avenue, Little Rock, AR 72202.

 

North Little Rock's Old Mill. This is where a scene from the famous movie `Gone with the wind` was filmed. It can be reached by taking a short drive from McCain mall.

 

Visitors can take tours of the place on their own, without paying an entering fee. Many outdoor activities can be put in practice here, and it's a great place for a fun day out in nature. Nature lovers should know that it is open all day long.

 

The Quapaw Quarter. It is a historical nine-square mile area, containing some of the oldest and historical parts of Little Rock. Visitors can admire the surroundings by taking a drive from the Governor's Mansion to MacArthur Park and admire the houses from the neighborhood, some of them dating from 1880.

 

Sports & outdoor events

The Arkansas Razorbacks are the stars here in Little Rock, covering both basketball and football, and many other sports.

 

The team wasn't always called the Razorbacks: in the early years of the university, the Cardinal served as nickname. Coach Hugo Bezdek called the players, in 1909, `a wild band of Razorback hogs`, and Razorbacks seemed a good nickname for the team.

 

For nature lovers, locals and visitors who came before advise them to drive outside the city for outdoor activities. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Little Rock is the Big Dam Bridge, considered to be the longest bridge in USA and the only bridge built inside a dam.

 

It is a popular place for walking or for bike events. It links 15 miles of trails in Little Rock and North Little Rock. The bridge is from Murray Park to Cook's Landing Park and it is considered to be more beautiful at night, because of all the lightings.
