Bentonville Reviews

All Categories
Bentonville is becoming a mecca for people of all ages, races, and religions. Throughout this former small town there are so many things to do. There is the old time square with it's redeveloped Walton museum, coffee shops galore, retro restaurants, and nature trails less than a block away. Moving further around the town, Crystal bridges has become a marquee destination that appreciates the finer aspects of American art. For the adventurous folks, parks are abundant where you least expect them and bike trails can be found just north in Bella Vista!
It is a great community town that is growing with opportunities! You can go to a coffee press room in the morning, museum full of artwork from Van Gogh to Rothko,and then end the evening at a local brewery or quaint restaurant. There is always something to do for family wether it be festivals or plays at the Walton arts center everyone can be sure to be included!
I moved to Bentonville in 2014 from a rural area in Northeast OK. It is amazing how in just the short amount of time I have been here I have seen this town grow significantly. The growth has been primarily that of business partners of the world's largest retailer, Wal-mart. As per their guidelines and requirements any vendor that enters into a business relationship with Wal-mart must have a satellite office located in the Northwest Arkansas area. Along with the growth of these corporations, there has naturally been an increase in population and economic growth such as restaurants and retailers. Known as the 'OZ' of Arkansas, it's exciting to be part of one of the fastest growing towns in the state. Definitely a place to visit when making a trip to the Natural State.
