LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) has a new virtual tour highlighting the city’s historic churches.
The tour adds to the collection of virtual and driving tours LRCVB developed in 2020 featuring some of the city’s amenities.
The Little Rock Historic Church Tour highlights nearly 20 beautiful churches rich in history and architectural design. Thirteen are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and two are located within a National Register Historic District. The entire tour includes 18 churches, several dating back to the 1880s. The tour includes a video, a list of details of each featured church, and a map of every location.
“The new Little Rock Historic Church Tour is the third virtual tour we have developed in 2020,” said Little Rock CVB president and CEO Gretchen Hall. “As with the other tours, people may view it virtually online from our website, or create an adventure by driving to each location at their leisure.”
Earlier this year, LRCVB looked for ways to build upon the city’s existing tourism product by showcasing new offerings in a different way—especially at a time when people were at home.
In the spring, the bureau curated an online mural tour with many art installations previously commissioned by the Little Rock Downtown Partnership. This summer, LRCVB rolled out a virtual sculpture tour highlighting more than 140 pieces of art in Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden and Riverfront Park, a 33-acre green space along the Arkansas River in the heart of downtown.
LRCVB collaborated with the City of Little Rock and the Quapaw Quarter Association on portions of the Little Rock Historic Church Tour.
