1:00-6:00 P.M. -- VISIT DOWNTOWN. Ride the streetcars, shop at the River Market Area, and tour the Clinton Presidential Library. Be forewarned that the Clinton Library itself can be an all-day experience, and traffic in the Clinton Library and River Market area is sometimes gridlocked and parking can be at a premium. Allow yourself time to return to the Crowne Plaza in time for the Reception and Group Photo at 6:00.
STREETCARS: All of you who grew up in Little Rock rode the streetcars downtown to go shopping with your mom. The
last streetcars ran Christmas day, 1949, but now the
streetcars are running again and this is your chance for one more ride. Schedules, routes, and fares are on the River Rail
website. Plan on about 45 minutes for the blue route, a round trip ride from the Clinton Library to North Little Rock and return. There's
a second loop, the green route, that doesn't cross the river and takes only about 20 minutes.
CLINTON LIBRARY: It's impressive. Worth coming in a day early to see it. Hours and
admission information on the website.

NOTE. Google wants you to turn left off of West Markham onto Mississippi, but you can also continue on to University before making the left turn, and, in fact, it's a prettier drive with less traffic to continue even further to Van Buren.
