Conway, Arkansas

Conway, Arkansas

A bustling college town that is one of the fastest growing communities in the state, Conway is located approximately 30 miles northwest of Little Rock. Being the home to not one but three colleges - University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix and Central Baptist - means there's always something going on whether it's a theatrical production, an art exhibit, a concert or a lecture by a nationally known speaker. The Arkansas River and Lake Conway provide excellent fishing while Beaverfork Lake is popular for water recreation. Shopping and antiquing prospects abound as do opportunities for both fine and casual dining. The city's annual early May festival - Toad Suck Daze - is one of the largest and most popular in the state.
