Where I’m From

Surrounded by the scenic Ozark Mountains, the historic city of Fayetteville is the center of Northwest Arkansas and has become an important hot spot for business, education and entertainment. One of “America’s Most Beautiful Towns” according to Parade magazine and voted No. 5 in “Best Small Places to Live” by Forbes magazine, Fayetteville offers the small-town feel that Arkansas is known for, while also having a wide range of exciting attractions and activities to take part in.

From restaurants and entertainment on Dickson Street to the Razorback athletic events, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Less than a halfhour away are the quarters of three of the state’s top five employers – Walmart, Tyson Foods and J.B. Hunt. More than 300 Fortune 500 companies can be found here, and Northwest Arkansas continues to be a destination for international businesses.
