As further proof, the travel website Lonely Planet recently ranked Northwest Arkansas among the top 10 places to visit in the U.S., calling Fayetteville an “artsy bubble with a vibrant literary scene.” Performances at the Walton Arts Center and the whimsical creations at Terra Studios are only two examples of Fayetteville’s creativity. But the city also brims with history, craft beer, artisanal coffee and natural beauty.
During any given weekend, visitors can bicycle for miles on the Razorback Regional Greenway, pick up locally grown produce and handmade items at the nationally acclaimed Fayetteville Farmers’ Market and relive the past at the Arkansas Air and Military Museum. Down on Dickson Street, you’ll find cocktails, a court of food trucks and historic concert venues. The winding paths of the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks showcase the native plants of
Arkansas in bursts of color and greenery. Annual festivals celebrating everything from chocolate to folk music draw thousands to the city to revel on the Historic Downtown Square or Dickson Street entertainment district. Those visitors return again and again to Fayetteville for the friendly people and the leisurely pace.
The city is also well-known for seamlessly hosting elite-level athletic tournaments, as well as business conventions and events big and small. To top it all off, Fayetteville is easy to navigate and offers a large selection of comfortable hotels to match your budget. For more information on Fayetteville, visit Experience Fayetteville
