NORTH LITTLE ROCK (July 26, 2019) – Planning the perfect day in North Little Rock just got much easier. The North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (NLRCVB) announced today the unveiling of a new North Little Rock Guide on their website with integrated mobile app.


“It’s no longer the exception but expected that tourism organizations be mobile-friendly,” said Stephanie Slagle, Director of Marketing for the NLRCVB. “About 60 percent of the people who visit our website do so from a mobile device, with another 5 percent on tablet. The app and planning widget offer more options for those that are always on-the-go and visitors that are looking for ways to enjoy our city.”

Designed with Visit Widget, the planning tool provides a new way to explore what North Little Rock has to offer, including upcoming events, popular restaurants and points of interest. Visitors can search by categories like “Arts & Culture”, “Dog Friendly” and “Nightlife”. If they choose to share their location, visitors will see nearby restaurants or attractions. Users can create itineraries and share with others through email, social and SMS. 

“While these tools will be helpful for out-of-town visitors, they also can be useful for locals,” Slagle said. “North Little Rock and Little Rock residents do check our website often, mostly for our comprehensive calendar of events. When they have family or friends in town, we hope the website will be even easier now to find things to do and make recommendations."

The free app (Explore North Little Rock!) is now available in the App Store and Google Play.
