Seems to me you are the one who sits on your computer all day responding to everyone who has negative opinions about Little Rock. And I get out plenty, thank you very much. I don't think you need to live here long to see what's going on. How cute, your bill says "city". And I have every right to have my opinion, negative or not, especially when I have to work all day and listen to constant racial and terroristic remarks made by ignorant rednecks. But lucky for me, I have finally moved from this crime-infested area and plan to never return. So you can keep your ridiculous "city" to yourself.

I lived in Port Huron for about 3 years and it was the most depressing 3 years of my life. It appears 90% of the town was drunk and on welfare, and these people seem to think this is normal and everyone else is weird. Nightlife consists of all-nighters at the bowling alleys and fist-fights among men and cat-fights among women seem to be the sport of choice. And because everyone is bored out of their minds, I met plenty of people who did a lot of cheating on their significant others. People seem very unmotivated, and have no ambition. Forget about finding a good job here. Housing is cheap but good neighborhoods are very scarce. Nearby Marysville or St. Clair may be better choices for places to live if you were planning on moving to this area, unless you prefer this type of Jerry Springer-type life-style.

Over the past year I have lived in Arkansas, it really is a pretty state. However, if you don't like to shop, like to stay home, not go anywhere and spend money, this is the place for you. There are places to shop, but really it's not all that exciting. Some people on this website have described Little Rock as a "city". Just because it has big buildings doesn't means it qualifies as a city. Cities have culture, a lot of entertainment, great restaurants, museums and are culturally diverse. Little Rock lacks a lot of this. Try referring to it as a big town with a few big buildings. If you like to hike, as I do, there are a lot of beautiful state parks to hike in.
Also, please take caution - Arkansans drives like a bunch of maniacs. They are inconsiderate, and have no regards for other peoples lives, they love to speed, tailgate and fling trash out of their windows. But if you can manage to get away for a Sunday drive, take a tour and see how many produce stands and other quaint little stores have a lot of misspelled words. Squach, anyone?
The cost of housing is pretty cheap, compared to the west, east and midwestern cities, the taxes are pretty low in most areas, but I think they can do better on their schools. It's a hit and miss depending on the town you choose to live.
If it weren't for my husband having to relocate with his job, I'd prefer to leave. I do like that it is quiet and seems to be more relaxed and peaceful, but it would be better to have that with a city nearby that you could escape to for a real night out on the town once in a while.
