Best Times to Visit Little Rock

The best time to visit Little Rock is from March through May and from September to October, when daytime highs hover between the mid-60s and low 80s. You'll also score slightly lower hotel rates in spring and fall than you will during the busy summer season. Not only does summer welcome more tourists since the kids are out of school, but it also means sweltering temps that can reach the low 90s. Winter experiences cooler temperatures that barely reach 55 degrees for daytime highs. Little Rock sees a fair amount of precipitation year-round; so, no matter when you visit, bring an umbrella and a raincoat along.
