Fayetteville is a great city! Located in the heart of northwest Arkansas, and nestled in the Ozark Mountains, this little town packs a big punch. It is a college town just a short drive from Bentonville, the home of Walmart, and is home to the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. The town is overflowing with school spirit, and state pride. It is completely connected with bike trails, and has several wonderful parks. The nightlife is awesome, and there are several community-oriented festivities every year. Fayetteville is very supportive of local businesses, the community, and the environment. This wonderful city has so much to offer for every type of person.
Fayetteville is a nice small to medium size college town that is continuing to grow. The cost of living is quite low. Fayetteville is absolutely the nicest place in America. The Ozark Mountains are gorgeous! The town is clean. The people are friendly. The crime is among the lowest in the nation. There is no "ghetto" anywhere! Nowhere that you would feel unsafe. It's amazing! This is a great town to raise a family. People are conservative. Mostly protestant Christian southerners. You get 4 distinct seasons. The weather is perfect! Autumn in the Ozark Mountains is absolutely beautiful! There is a lot of history in the Ozarks and in Fayetteville too. A lot of restored historical buildings. Absolutely Beautiful!
Fayetteville, AR is such a great city, both during your school years and as a home after graduation. The growth in the area means there is always something going on, new housing being built, and great employment opportunities. Dickson Street is always a great hangout, but there are also nice, chill bars around town if the party scene isn't your thing. The food options are great, and our food truck scene is seriously expanding! We have all the great qualities of a town so proud of our local qualities, but all the convenience of a large city (less than 10 minutes to either a quick-stop or Wal-mart). The only issue I have is the cost of renting. Prices have gone up so much in the past 4 years due to some of the student housing (which rents by the bedroom) and the population growth creating a lot of demand.
