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!
Review Bentonville
I really like Bentonville because it's cute little town in the beautiful state of Arkansas where you can go hiking, to art museums, restaurants, shopping, etc. It's got so much in a small vicinity that driving 20 minutes is considered a long drive. It is a consumerist community where there are many big brand names but there are also small local foods, shops and art. One thing that I do want a change in Bentonville is that there countless number of things to do for children and adults but nothing in between. There aren't that many attractions for teenagers. But it is very family friendly and community oriented. Everybody is welcome and can easily make a new friend almost daily.
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!
