North little rock has its perks and downfalls! There is alot of crime in certain areas so it can get a little scary. The food is great! The traffic during work hours in the morning and evening are so hectic. Always try to leave early any where you go! You can get to anything you need pretty quickly, such as, gyms, grocery store, hospitals and things of that nature.

North Little Rock offers all the shopping and dining experiences you could need or want, with a very close and easily accessible proximity to the larger capital city of Little Rock. Lower crime rates and more affordable housing than Little Rock. The city is also managed much more effectively than our larger neighbor in the upkeep and services provided: potholes are fixed and streets are cleared of ice & snow much more quickly; leaves are picked up by large vacuum trucks curbside during the fall; large yard debris, furniture, and other junk also picked up regularly curbside without having to make special phone calls. It's a lovely little city and my husband and I have never regretted purchasing our home here 2.5 years ago.
In my experience in living in North Little Rock, Arkansas, I've seen a paramount of things ranging from the good and bad. The thing I like about living in North Little Rock is the environment. Everyone is friendly and besides the fact that it's home for me, I've heard tourist say the we, the people of North Little Rock, Arkansas, make them feel at home. One thing I could change about the city of North Little Rock, Arkansas, is crime rate. North Little Rock, Arkansas has great potential to be a growing and thriving city in the future but will be thwarted by the scares of the crime rate.
