Clinton Library Crowd Expectation

Arkansas tourism officials hope some of the crowd expected for this month's opening of the Clinton Presidential Library will spill over into other parts of the state.

They're touting day-trip opportunities for short jaunts outside Little Rock, such as visits to Natural Springs and kayaking on a river.

The state tourism director says officials hope the visitors will decide Arkansas is a surprise they like.

The presidential library opens to the public on November 19th in downtown Little Rock.

It is expected to draw 300,000 people to Little Rock in its first year.
