5 Reasons to Move to Fayetteville Arkansas

Jan 17, 2020

Fayetteville is the third-largest city in Arkansas and was even named the 4th best place to live by U.S. News and World Report.

And while these things are pretty great, there are plenty of other reasons to make the move to Fayetteville. Here are our top 5 reasons to call Fayetteville home.

1: The Natural Beauty

It’s no secret that Fayetteville is gorgeous. The town is filled with trees, nature parks, and views of the Ozarks. And, just a short drive out of town will take you to stunning hiking and camping locations like Devils Den State Park which features caves, fishing, and hikes that end with mountain views.

2: Vibrant Nightlife

Fayetteville isn’t the type of town that sleeps with the sun. After dusk, residents loosen up and enjoy concerts, dancing, karaoke, and other nightlife events. Students from the university bring a young and energetic vibe to the scene when school is in session.

3: Live Sports

The city is home to the state’s flagship university, the University of Arkansas. There is a culture of tailgating and fierce loyalty to our division one college athletics. Residents enjoy cheering on all sports from football to baseball and even gymnastics.

4: Dickson Street

The iconic Dickson Street is the lifeline of Fayetteville culture. Local staples like George’s Majestic Lounge, the oldest and longest-running live music venue in the state, call this street home. Weekend-long popular events like Bikes, Blues, and BBQs and Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade bring people from across the region and nation to the area to enjoy what Dickson street has to offer.

5: The Arts

The Walton Arts Center brings premier musical theater from broadway to Arkansas. Acclaimed shows like Waitress, Cats, Fiddler on the Roof, and more have been performed on the Walton Arts Center stage. The venue also hosts ballets, comedy, concerts, and a variety of family programming.

We hope this paints an unbiased portrait of one of the greatest cities on earth, but hey, if it wasn’t so great a place there wouldn’t be anyone living here to be biased about it, right?
