About Fayetteville

The beautiful and historical city of Fayetteville is the center of everything that happens in Northwest Arkansas. Surrounded by the Ozark Mountains, natural beauty is something you come to expect when you’re here. Fayetteville offers the small-town feel that Arkansas is known for, while always having something exciting going on.  Some of Fayetteville’s highlights include the Fayetteville Farmers Market, Dickson Street, a city-wide trails system, our award-winning public library, and The Walton Arts Center


Fayetteville continues to be recognized by national business magazines and quality of life publications for its extremely healthy economy.  It was ranked 8th on Forbes Magazine’s “Top 10 Best Places in America for Business and Careers” and #7 on Kiplinger’s 2008 “Best Cities to Work, Live and Play” list.   Northwest Arkansas is bustling, with three of Arkansas’ top five employers—Wal-Mart, Tyson Foods and J.B. Hunt—headquartered less than a half-hour drive from Fayetteville. The result of this economic picture is business success and top-notch living conditions for the town’s current estimated population of 73,580.
