Review Bella Vista
Bella vista is a nice quite little community with lots of golf courses, walking trails, & lakes. Once it was more of a retirement & vacation destination, its now becoming a lot more family friendly. Everything is very close with Bentonville, AR only 20 mins away & Fayetteville or XNA about 45 mins. its very convenient without being over crowed. There is a lot building & changes going on in the NWA area at this time with jobs, new schools, museums & amazing parks, Its Home!
I just moved here in December of 2015. I lived in California prior to moving here and I love this new area so much better. I love living next to the lake, everyone is so nice here, very pet friendly ( I love animals so much), and it's not overly populated. When I am ready to move out, I'd love to get a place with a friend of mine here. It's beautiful!
Where I live, the neighborhood is much quieter than the neighboring, fast growing cities. Mostly, Bella Vista is a retirement community, and the people are fairly welcoming, especially to younger people. Every now and then, events such as arts and craft fairs will open to bring the community together in fun and games. I would compare it to JRR Tolkien's The Shire because of the quiet, homey feeling. Although, with the expansion of the neighboring cities, progress has been spreading to our town as well, and doing a wonderful job of not disrupting the peace, but improving it.
