Fayetteville, Arkansas

The Fayetteville square is known for its beautiful gardens and Farmer's Market that runs three days a week beginning in Spring and ending in early autumn. Just blocks away, Dickson Street is the hip place for unique shops, dining locales, and tons of live music venues. Completing the scene are the symphony concerts at the Walton Arts Center, which also brings Broadway shows, drama, and dance to the city's entertainment district. Fayetteville is also rich in Civil War history with the National and Confederate cemeteries and Headquarters House.

Hiking and mountain bike trails are abundant within the city and surrounding Ozark region, including Lake Wedington, White Rock Recreation Area, Ozark Highlands Trail and Devil's Den State Park. Outdoor enthusiasts also enjoy nearby camping, horseback riding and caving opportunities. Rivers in the area that are popular for fishing and floating are the White, Kings and Mulberry.

Home to the University of Arkansas, the state's major research and flagship education institution, and located off of Interstate 540, Fayetteville is 58 miles from Eureka Springs, 60 miles from the Buffalo National River, and 63 miles from Fort Smith.
