According to Kiplinger, you won’t find a better small-to-mid-size city anywhere and you won’t find a better quality of life in a city this size anywhere in the South.   Editors at Outside magazine just chose Little Rock as the best city for outdoor living.  Little Rock is among America’s Top 10 in cleanliness, happiness, and value, and UALR is just minutes away from lots of things to do – shopping, trails, parks, sports teams, museums, art galleries, theaters, nightlife, and countless restaurants.  Little Rock is number 71 on Forbes‘ list of the best 200 places for business and careers due to its low cost of doing business, job growth, and educated labor supply.
