Little Rock, Arkansas is an often overlooked option for a stop between Memphis and Dallas. I decided to call in on exactly this route and check out this pretty little city.
My day started with brunch at The Corner Diner in the Downtown area. There was a long line of customers waiting to get in, but I was assured it would be worth it.
It certainly was. My Hot Chicken Waffle was tasty and the service was excellent.
After brunch I decided a little exercise was called for, so I walked a roughly 5-mile stretch of the Trail of Tears, a network of trails spanning more than 5,000 miles across 9 states.
The trail took me along the Arkansas River, past the Main Street and North Broadway bridges and several pretty picnic areas.
After my 5-mile stroll I decided to catch the historic tram back to town to pick up my car and head onwards towards Dallas.
Little Rock is a pleasant little city and I definitely think it is worth either a day trip from Memphis, or a stop along the route to Dallas.
