Bentonville is becoming a mecca for people of all ages, races, and religions. Throughout this former small town there are so many things to do. There is the old time square with it's redeveloped Walton museum, coffee shops galore, retro restaurants, and nature trails less than a block away. Moving further around the town, Crystal bridges has become a marquee destination that appreciates the finer aspects of American art. For the adventurous folks, parks are abundant where you least expect them and bike trails can be found just north in Bella Vista!

It is a great community town that is growing with opportunities! You can go to a coffee press room in the morning, museum full of artwork from Van Gogh to Rothko,and then end the evening at a local brewery or quaint restaurant. There is always something to do for family wether it be festivals or plays at the Walton arts center everyone can be sure to be included!

Bentonville, Arkansas provides one of the most unique living experiences I've ever seen. I've lived in Dallas, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah. Neither of them compare in the slightest. There are a surplus of outdoor activities such as hiking trails, State Parks, gardens, and museums to visit. Bentonville provides one of the most diverse locations in the area of food. Privately owned restaurants appear seemingly every day, each offering something that I've never found anywhere else. I'd rank Bentonville, Arkansas next to Austin, Texas in almost every area other than size. Both are fairly liberal cities in very conservative states that are only going to grow larger over the next ten years.
