Fayetteville is the largest city in Northwest Arkansas, and home to the University of Arkansas, the Walton Arts Center, and Dickson Street Entertainment District. It’s also the home to many entrepreneurs, working to build and scale startups.

Fayetteville has held onto its great history while keeping up with the wants and needs of a growing urban population interested in modern amenities. Great bike-ped trails, large city parks, the region’s largest farmer’s market, and a fantastic recycling program are a few of the city’s impressive attributes.

Fayetteville’s housing stock may be more diverse than in any Northwest Arkansas city. There are large, tree-covered lots on Mount Sequoyah, in eastern areas of the city, and west of the UA campus. The city is also home to the Washington-Willow Historic District, a 37-acre area that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 because of its architecturally significant homes. Fayetteville, being a college town, also has the most apartment and condo options in the region.
