Relocation to Little Rock

Jump to last reply

I realize this is a travel forum, yet I've seen people kindly provide relocation advice so I hope someone can help.

My husband may have a promotion opportunity in Little Rock. We've never been there, nor even to Arkansas, but I've heard some pretty nice things about it- in short, it has the amenities of a city with a small town feel. Sounds nice!

Housing prices seem to be very reasonable. I've seen a number of houses on the internet I like but I would like some advice as to neighborhood. It's likely to be just the two of us so schools aren't an issue. We seemed to be focused on the west side and Maumelle (Benton and Bryant seem a bit further than we would prefer.)
My wish list:
Convenient (though not sure to what!)
Neighborhood feel as opposed to just a development (I don't like houses set in a big open field)
Bike trails nearby- or flat quiet streets for riding
Newer homes
Mix of ages (we're mid 40's)
Community pool?
Sidewalks
Walking distance to coffee house(!)

We also liked the idea of some of the downtown condos we saw but most seem to be out of our price range. (ideally no more than $250k or so)

Any recommendations you can share would be most appreciated!
