Conway has expanded since my first year of college in 2005. This city is very dear to me because of all the accomplishments as well as hardships I have endured while being here. I became here straight out of high school and into adulthood. This is the place where I started college, bought my first place, had my first boyfriend, as well as my first job. I even bought my first car here! My children are were born and are currently being raise here! Outside of the good things, Conway is where I had my first break up, my first termination from a job, my first hardship in life. Through all those things good and bad, Conway is home and full of opportunities for my family and I.

Clean town growing at a fast pace. Plenty of things to do on the weekend and centrally located. There is a hopping downtown full of bistros, restaurants, and shops with an annual music festival. With the exponential growth in population and businesses, the traffic can be hectic. However, they are aiding the problem by adding round-abouts. This is one way this town things progressively and swiftly. Additionally, this town is known as the town of colleges of Arkansas. There are three four-year colleges as well as community educational opportunities, which allows for a rich, diverse community and benefits from their educational experiences.
I love the community it's a family feel.I have lived here for three years and the crime rate is very low. The school system is very involved, not only with education but the family as well, keeping in contact and always willing to go the extra mile. Fun Family activities are available from good eating, entertainment for both adults and children, as well as outdoor fun complementary of the mayor. The parks are always clean, the parents their has a watch program, to give you a peace of mind as your children play. Over all i would recommend conway to any family it's beautiful, clean, and the people here are very nice and friendly. The homes are well kept and affordable. Conway is a place i would raise my children with a ease mind.
