I currently live here in NW Arkansas. I've heard Fayetteville called many things, but first and foremost it is a college town. The University of Arkansas is the centerpiece of the town and many of the activities in the town. Fayetteville is unique among the rest of the NW Arkansas area in that it is more "open" and "socially liberal" than the rest of the area. That is not to say that it is a bastion of "liberalism" but with the University here ideas are flowing a little more freely than the rest of the area. There is some good shopping, but since Bentonville (north of Fayetteville about 20-30 miles) is the home of Wal-Mart this is very much Wal-Mart country.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A really great and supportive University town
  • Cons:Too many Wal-Marts
  • In a nutshell:Crazy about them Hogs
