Brick-paved streets lead to old-fashioned store fronts filled with unique furniture, antiques and gifts, cafes, jewelry and business offices in Rogers' historic downtown, which encompasses about eight square blocks. The Daisy International Air Museum, home to the world's largest collection of antique airguns, and the Rogers Historical Museum are also located here. More contemporary and cosmopolitan shopping abounds near Interstate 540 at Scottsdale Center and at Village on the Creeks.
Outdoor opportunities abound, too. Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area on Beaver Lake is just minutes from downtown Rogers. At 30,000 acres, Beaver Lake offers top-notch fishing, particularly for striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, bream and catfish. Popular water sports include boating, water skiing, scuba diving and swimming. Also, Rogers is seven miles from War Eagle, home to one of the finest crafts fairs in the country, 34 miles from Eureka Springs, and about 67 miles from the Buffalo National River.
