Northwest Arkansas is part outdoor adventurer’s dream, part hustle and bustle of a much bigger community. Locals can have both lifestyles because NWA is home to Fortune 500 headquarters surrounded by stunning scenery.
Northwest Arkansas is located in the Ozark Mountains. The Ozarks provide hilly terrain and forests that make for a breathtaking, natural setting. The combination of a beautiful natural setting and an agreeable climate make the region popular with adventurers.
Outdoor activities — especially mountain biking, running and kayaking — are popular throughout the region. Northwest Arkansas has four distinct seasons, making it easy to enjoy the outdoors just about all the time.
National, state and local parks such as The Buffalo National River, Hobbs State Park, the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, and Devil’s Den State Park are all nearby. Sometimes you’ll drive an hour to get there, but a place like the botanical garden is within 30 minutes of just about every person in Benton and Washington counties.
Northwest Arkansas is home to a world-class American art museum, restaurants, shopping, craft breweries, cultural and family festivals.
Conde Nast Publications described Northwest Arkansas as having “top-notch independent design shops, passionately supported by local vendors.”
