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.

Conway is a great town to visit, work, shop, eat and all around be in. It is called the City of Colleges because it includes 3 colleges. So, the city tends to cater itself to that age group. This makes for an exciting lifestyle for all participants, while still maintaining a family friendly atmosphere. I love Conway, Arkansas!
I love the small town Conway, AR! It is home to many of my family members as well as my ancestors at one time. For a small town there's not so much to do but there are smaller towns so we do have a few things to be grateful for in our area! We have a bowling alley, a wide range of shopping stores other than the 2 Walmart's, the Cinemark Theater, a few great parks with tennis and basketball courts, and lakes around our area for boat fun, fishing, or just relaxing. A big downside to our town though is during rush hour of course and lunch. Construction workers have been working on our town roads to widen them but due to all the cones and one lanes it is awful getting around at that time. Our town is growing in numerous numbers everyday and I am excited to see where it goes!
