Northwest Arkansas is part outdoor adventurer’s dream, part hustle & bustle of a much bigger city. Locals can have both lifestyles, because NWA is home to multiple Fortune 500 headquarters surrounded by stunning scenery.
Northwest Arkansas is located in the south-central portion of the Ozark Mountains. The Ozarks provide Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding area with its 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 sports – especially biking, running and kayaking – are popular throughout the region. Northwest Arkansas has four distinct, mild seasons, making it easy train or enjoy being outside year-round.
National and State parks such as The Buffalo National River, Hobbs State Park, the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, Hobbs State Park and Devil’s Den State Park are within a days drive from anywhere in Northwest Arkansas.
It’s more than outdoors though; 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.” Find out more about shopping.
