Arkansas’s first environmental education state park interprets the importance of the natural world and our place within it.
A clear winner emerged among many suggestions — good and bad — for cheap dates.

• Second Friday Art Night. Ride the trolley. Drop in on art exhibits around downtown. You might even cadge a drink of wine or two.
• Big Dam Bridge. It’s another outing for the athletically inclined, but the bike/hike bridge over Murray Dam is one of the city’s hot new views and a vision itself in its night light finery.
• Little Rock Zoo. Regular adult admission is $8, but it’s a small price for up-close encounters with the animal kingdom.
Others voted for a night at the movies, an evening at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse, a stroll around the River Market, watching the planes land at the Little Rock National Airport and Gator Park.
