I live close to the Arkansas river. There are walking and cycling trails, a golf course and many restaurants within walking distance of my home. The restaurants offer foods from various ethnicities and the quality of food is good with prices affordable to most people.

About ten minutes from my home, downtown Little Rock offers a Presidential Library, Territorial restoration and several museums. I feel very fortunate to live so close to downtown while living in a small, friendly neighborhood.

I love Little Rock. I am not from here originally, but I appreciate how friendly the people in Little Rock are. I wish the schools were better and I wish most people were more educated, but other than that I wouldn't change anything.
My neighborhood in Little Rock is very safe, but Little Rock still has a lot of crime overall. I wish break-ins and robberies were less common.
