Our city is in the Southern part of the Ozark plateau. We have the University of Arkansas, as well as a historic downtown area. There are lots of trees, which means that there are also a lot of allergies. If you came here, I would be careful walking everywhere, just because there’s a lot of hills.

Fayetteville is a college town not far from the home of Walmart. The main slogan is to Keep Fayetteville Funky. It lies in the heart of Northwest Arkansas with an interesting mix of small town feel in a community growing towards a metropolis. Just south of town is the first home of Bill and HIllary Clinton which has been memorialized to the delight of some and the chagrin of others.

Fayetteville is a small university town, so the most valuable information tends to get conveyed through word of mouth. For example, no online guide will tell you that Harps is the best place to shop for groceries or that the post office on Dickson Street offers the best service. Finally, know while life here is affordable and quiet, it can lack options for entertainment. Make sure you know people who you can spend quality time with.

Fayetteville is a beautiful town with a rich history. It is home to the University of Arkansas, and it has a vibrant arts scene. It’s also full of great restaurants and friendly people. Though the pace of life picks up significantly when school is in session, it’s easy to find fun things to do throughout the year, especially for outdoor enthusiasts.

Fayetteville is a college town and a booming business town. It is a big city for Arkansas and has many attractions. You can do anything from: going bowling, swimming, walking downtown, going to shows, and find amazing new people. Everybody here is a Razorback fan even though they haven’t won a game in a while.

As someone who just moved to Fayetteville in October, I think it is important to share that this area of the state (northwest Arkansas) is known for its outdoor activities. Fishing, hiking, and running are among the many popular activities in this region. Since my family moved to this town, we have discovered over five running and bicycle trails.

Home of the Razorback hogs, Fayetteville, Arkansas, is one of the fastest growing small cities in the nation. Nestled in the Northwest part of the Natural State, it has ready, easy access to nearby towns like Bentonville where you can see Crystal Bridges, an internationally recognized museum built by the Walmart Foundation.

Fayetteville is a small city tucked away in a forgotten corner of Arkansas. While larger and more progressive than the surrounding cities, it is still a in the center of the Bible Belt, and is called home by only 70,000 citizens. Some of the benefits of living there are the surrounding lakes, creeks, and forests, lending the city a comforting country living aura. One should, however, be prepared for the volatile shifts in weather, from deep winter colds and sweltering summer highs to thunderstorms and tornadoes.

Fayetteville is an eclectic city in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. The city itself is home to a large university, the University of Arkansas. This institution gives the city a small multicultural feel. Since it is a smaller town, the people remain very friendly and inviting to newcomers. Fayetteville is in the Natural State, meaning there are a variety of lakes, rivers, and mountains to visit when you want to explore the outdoors.
