Bentonville is a town with a rich history. In downtown Bentonville, there is the first ever Walmart that was built. Sam Walton left a huge mark on the beautiful town that impacts our lifestyle in the town even to this day! The infamous Crystal Bridges Art Museum is also in this town, and it is a must to see! As more people are moving in, more schools are having to be built, which is increasing the property tax along with other costs. I would want to see these costs to go down, but other than that, Bentonville Arkansas is a wonderful place and it is growing at a very positive rate! A wonderful place to live in!

Bentonville is one of the best cities in the U.S. It is extremely safe, and there is so much to do with your family and friends. There is a huge art museum that is world renowned, and bike and hiking trails all over, not to mention the famous Walmart Museum on the city square that is surrounded by many 5-star restaurants and an amazing hotel!
I love living in Bentonville! There are many things to do and it's such a unique and lively town. Between the parks, museums, and the downtown area, Bentonville is truly special.
