Though they both have humble beginnings, the downtowns of Little Rock and North Little Rock are now vibrant, bustling places where locals and visitors alike come to experience the city.

In addition to being the area's creative destination--the Arkansas Arts Center, Ballet Arkansas, The Rep, Argenta Community Theater and a host of other galleries and museums are all here--Downtown and Argenta are also a foodie's dream-come-true, both claiming award-winning restaurants like One Eleven in the Capital Hotel and Ristorante Capeo in Argenta.

And for those interested in high-rise living, there are plenty of new, spacious condos and apartments on both sides of the Arkansas River.
