Home to America’s premier art museum, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville is one of the best group travel destinations in Arkansas. It’s easy to get here via the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) with more than 40 flights a day to 14 destinations. Crystal Bridges offers many meeting spaces for groups of all sizes, as well as a restaurant and outdoor opportunities on scenic trails and overlooks. Nearby is the Amazeum, a hands-on learning center and museum for families and groups with meeting space available for out-of-the-ordinary activities like climbing a tree canopy and exploring an indoor cave. A new concept is Brightwater, A Center for the Study of Food, which was conceived to be more than a typical culinary school but part of a holistic approach to eating, learning and nutrition. The state-of-the-art facilities are located in the 8th Street Market, home to Bike Rack Brewing Co. with other new neighbors moving in, like restaurants and co-working spaces, that make it a cool creative community. The Bentonville square is where you’ll find a farmer’s market, Phat Tire bike shop, the Walton Museum, which features Walton’s original 5&10, as well as Onyx Coffee Lab, Pressroom, Tusk & Trotter and other restaurants and shops. 21c Museum Hotel is just off the square and is a beautiful bicycle-friendly hotel with exhibit spaces and a stylish restaurant and bar, The Hive.
