Just in time for Riverfest, the Mark Twain Riverboat will be up and running May 23. Currently it is docked on the north side of the Arkansas River, ready to ply the historic waters. An authentic stern wheeler, the boat offers formal or casual dining for day or evening, and a bar with full view windows on the Main Deck. The Mark Twain is one of the few authentic paddle wheel boats in existence. The first deck is climate-controlled for year-round cruising while the second deck is open-air. The boat is available for private charters and cruises.
Also new on the Arkansas River in North Little Rock is the Sandbar on Riverfront, where you can enjoy both indoor and outdoor top deck seating. A variety of beverages and finger foods are offered. Dockside public dinners are available with advance reservations.
