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!

Bella Vista has beautiful trees, lakes and hiking trails, while being close to shopping and city activities. There is a great museum (Crystal Bridges) and excellent dinning in Bentonville and surrounding areas. You can always find great shopping at the Promenade in Rogers. There are lots of awesome concerts at the Walmart Amp. There are sports teams to root for and games to watch with the AR. Razorbacks. There are nearby Indian casinos, for an exciting day or evening out.
Bella Vista is a gorgeous, quiet town perfect for anyone seeking to retire and spend their days outdoors. Arkansas is a beautiful state, and Bella Vista is just one of the many cities within it dedicating its land to the preservation of natural forestation and recreational activities.
