When the Little Rock Zoo opened its gates in 1926, it contained fewer animals than many people's homes. At the time, its inhabitants were, in total, a circus-trained brown bear and an abandoned timber wolf. From its formative days, the Little Rock Zoo has expanded dramatically, now home to more than 700 animals from more than 200 unique species. Visitors can witness lions, tigers, and jaguars up close; interact with exotic birds; and carefully navigate spider monkeys' webs. In addition to conserving wildlife, the zoo also preserves a unique antique carousel, one of only four in the world to feature an undulating wooden track rather than conventional moving poles.
Arkansas Extended Learning Center culls a massive, seasonal lineup of informative classes, recruiting chefs, artists, athletes, and other professionals to share their wisdom with students of all ages. Pupils can pick up new hobbies such as fly-fishing or digital photography, or sharpen nascent abilities in fields such as cooking and wine-tasting. Otherwise, they can tone up their physiques in fitness and dance classes, discover a new way to communicate in foreign-language workshops, or learn how to cut their way out of a hedge maze during gardening and landscaping tutorials.
The Golf of Castle Valley course bounds over gently rolling hills as it wraps around Coulter Lake through thick stands of mature trees. Golfers can tee off an unlimited number of times on the club's 18-hole course, slowly building a mental map of each area until every dogleg, water hazard, and tricky green is as familiar as the national anthem or the national butterfly. Practice approach shots along the bank of Coulter Lake, or chip shots past winding streams and the stretching limbs of trees along each fairway.
Inside Barefoot Studio's spacious, 4,000-square-foot facility, instructors guide students through a variety of yoga classes according to experience levels in two separate practice spaces. The studio’s team of studied yoga instructors lead students through a seven-day schedule of morning and evening 90-minute stretch sessions, including a beginners' class to acquaint newbies with the foundational postures and breathing exercises necessary for more advanced classes. Veterans gather for Hot Fusion Yoga classes in a 92- to 95-degree room, letting the heat maximize their flexibility and appreciation for January. Hatha and Vinyasa classes are also available. Yin Yoga instructors help students target the deep connective tissues surrounding the joints and the muscles around the hips, pelvis, and lower back by holding postures for 3–10 minutes at a time. Though the studio hosts educational workshops and special events, this Groupon is only valid for 90-minute yoga classes.
