Walk on your Big Dam Bridge (Thank you, Judge Buddy!) or walk on your Two Rivers Bridge (Thank you, Judge Buddy!) or take your children to play at the River Market. Discovery Museum is good, I hope, since I bought a family membership for my grandson for his birthday. An eight-year-old wasn't as thrilled about a family membership as he would be about a Leggo set. I had to tough that out.

Wow, I can't believe I had no idea that was right here in town! (Well, Argenta, anyway.) It's kind of funny to me that it was built by a Mexican over sixty years after the Civil War, though. :-) Thanks so much for the tip!
I don't have to convince other people that I can reach my goals. They'll believe me after I do, and I'm not doing this for them anyway.
I went to the Old Mill yesterday. It was really fun. I don't think it's something that would take a lot of time by itself. Your kids would probably really enjoy walking around there. Maybe taking a picnic there would be good. You could sit outside, enjoy the nice air. Your kids could play. It would be a neat memory and a good small reward.
Hi, KCathy-- It's harder to come up with places to go to when the weather is this hot outside, but if you like art, the Arts Center in McArthur Park is free and open almost every day (not Sunday and Monday). The Old State House and Historic Arkansas Museum are within a couple of blocks of each other downtown and I'm pretty sure are both free. When my son was young, I used to take him to the Discovery Museum in the Rivermarket. It's not free but I don't think it's real expensive, and it's for kids, it's easy to spend half a day there. There's a kid-science museum in Hot Springs as well.
If it's warm outside, I always enjoy going to Hot Springs. You can walk down the promenade and then bath house row. Going through the bath house is fascinating to me. You can also go up the tower and look out at the pretty mountains. Hot Springs is only an hour away. Plus, your kids would probably even enjoy that. And (other than gas and maybe a meal), it's basically free!
