Explore all the offerings of Fayetteville, from the arts to fine dining and and happenin' nightlife, along with beautiful Ozark Mountain scenery.
Fayetteville offers contemporary shopping and plenty of nightlife. Home to the University of Arkansas, the state’s major research and flagship education institution, Fayetteville’s atmosphere is friendly and diverse. It parallels the cultural diversity found on the UA campus. The Fayetteville square is known for its beautiful gardens and Farmers Market that runs three days a week beginning in spring and ending in early autumn. Just blocks away, Dickson Street is the hip place for unique shops, dining locales, and live music venues. The Walton Arts Center brings Broadway shows, drama, and dance to the city’s entertainment district. While Fayetteville is without a doubt the arts and entertainment center of Northwest Arkansas, it is also rich in Civil War history with the National and Confederate cemeteries and Headquarters House.
