Below are the 3 Little Rock Neighborhoods you probably
haven’t heard of.


1. Walnut Valley


Walnut Valley has proven to be a popular place to either raise a family, or spend your retirement years. Crime rates are low, graduation rates are high, and homes either for rent or sale are favorably priced as compared to other neighborhoods in the area.

Shopping is convenient, public transportation is handy, and downtown Little Rock is minutes away, all of which can make life in this area a pleasure, not a burden. Whether shopping or sightseeing, the River Market District is a “must see” and when you’re ready to eat after a full day, whatever you’re in the mood for you can bet there will be a local restaurant nearby that serves just what you want.


2. Rock Creek


Rock Creek’s low cost of living and high graduation rates make this a popular neighborhood. Low crime and higher home values than Little Rock are two more popular reasons that my clients have aimed for a home in this area.

Good schools, the Rebsamen and Hindman Golf Courses, bowling, water parks or a quiet museum are just a bare sample of what makes Rock Creek a popular Little Rock Neighborhood for young families or retirees. With reasonable purchase prices on new homes, finding affordable housing in Rock Creek is well within the budget of the average American.

Dependable public transportation is available, and for those who’d rather drive themselves, roads are kept in good shape.

Downtown Little Rock is less than 20 minutes away which is not an unreasonable distance for commuting or a day out on the town for the pure fun of it.


3. River Mountain


River Mountain’s stable housing market gets people into affordable, decent homes and its residents enjoy a significantly lower crime rate than other areas of the city. Interstates 30 and 40 meet in the area making travel to anywhere in the rest of the state easy to do.

Public transportation for local travel is efficient, and downtown Little Rock with all its entertainment possibilities is never more than minutes away.

This town is not short on the amenities that make life easier or the kind of natural beauty you want to keep your camera handy for. The scenery along the Arkansas River is worth framing, and Bobby’s bike hike is a good way to experience nature up close.

Visitors or residents of this Little Rock Neighborhood enjoy the River Market district for shopping and the Zoo is perfect for kids that need to get out and walk off some energy.
