Girls’ weekend getaway

We could start by recommending the usual spas and salons that typically a girls’ weekend calls for – but we’re going to bet you and your friends might be looking for something a little more…adventurous. A little more Instagram-worthy.

(Pssst…if you like our recommendations, we’ve saved you some time and started your trip at the button below).


  • Kayak the Arkansas River with Rocktown River Outfitters. It’s beginner-friendly and perfect for all skill levels.
  • Get your phones ready: The Old Mill is by far one of the most photographed attractions in Arkansas! The stone bridges, water fountain and friendly geese ensure plenty of photo-opps.


  • For lunch, try out the brand new Tacos 4 Life, a local chain that serves up fantastic tacos but also has a mission to help others. For a more “retro” filter, the new Purple Cow next door has your American classics of milkshakes and burgers.
  • Escape rooms are all the rage right now, and while you can only take photos after you’ve escaped, the experience is well-worth the no phone rule. Central Arkansas Escape Rooms and Ozark Escape are two local businesses that will challenge your whole group to a race against the clock.
  • Celebrate, you deserve it! The Original ScoopDog serves some of the best custard you’ll ever taste, with so many mix-ins and options it’s a little overwhelming. (Quick tip: remember to bring cash.)


  • Keep the fun going! Hop on one of the vintage-style streetcars for late-night fun in Little Rock’s River Market District. (Quick tip: the streetcars are FREE in 2019! The streetcars run until midnight Fridays and Saturdays.)
