Settled in the beautiful foothills of the Ozark Mountain range, Fayetteville is a town where any visitor can feel at home. The third largest city in Arkansas, the city is a thriving metropolis that still manages to maintain its charm and heritage. With the wild beauty of national parks and mountains just on your doorstep, you’ll want to start exploring Fayetteville as soon as you arrive.
Start your visit to Fayetteville in the historic Downtown; it acts a hub of activity and attractions for locals and visitors alike. Dickson Street is a must for luxurious boutique shopping during the day or some southern home-cooking and live music in the evening. If you’d like to experience a touch of NYC in Arkansas, head to the Walton Arts Center, where Broadway performances and award-winning actors take center stage.
For a high energy experience, head to a Razorback game! Fayetteville hosts a sporting event nearly every weekend during semesters as events align with the University of Arkansas calendar. Cheer on nationally competitive athletes in football, baseball, track, basketball, and gymnastics if you’re in town for the weekend. Just remember to wear the color red!
If you’re looking some fine-dining, there are plenty of unique restaurants nestled among great local shops and boutiques to whet your appetite in Uptown, Midtown, and South Fayetteville. Alternatively, live like a local and visit one of America's top farmer's markets and shop for some local produce grown and harvested in Fayetteville.
Getting to experience the great outdoors is easy from Fayetteville. The city has over 26 miles of mixed-use trails, three scenic lakes, a BMX track, a stake park, and a staggering 43 athletic fields and courts spread over 4,300 acres of parkland. That’s a lot of outdoor fun waiting to be explored in one city! But if you’re really looking to escape the city and get into the wilderness of Arkansas, you can canoe or kayak down the Buffalo River, hike and camp in Ozark National Forest, or really challenge yourself to a 36-mile bike ride. The Razorback Greenway Trail System runs from Fayetteville to Bella Vista and links six downtown areas in the Northwest of Arkansas. It’s a real achievement for any cross-country bike fans.
