Journeys of Discovery: Exploring North Little Rock a.k.a. "Dogtown"

The town of North Little Rock, Arkansas is separated from the capital city of Little Rock by the Arkansas River. Come along and join correspondent Tom Wilmer for a visit with Scott Sudduth with the North Little Rock Convention & Visitors bureau to discover the array of cool and distinctive attractions.

Suddeth also shares the story of how the town’s elders turned around the derogatory moniker, "Dogtown", that was bestowed by folks on the other side of the river more than a century ago…Today the term Dogtown is a badge of pride and honor for the denizens of North Little Rock. 

Underwriting support for Journeys of Discovery provided by Nashville's Big Back Yard economic initiative focused on rural communities in the southwest quarter of Tennessee and the Shoals Region of Northern Alabama.
