I’ve lived in Fayetteville, AR for almost 8 years now. We love living here and we’ve found that there is no other place quite like it. Here are some of our favorite places/things to do in the area, just in case you ever find yourself in these parts.
Has a paved 5.5 mile trail and a 6.9 mile nature trail. Also has an 18 hole disc golf course.
Near downtown, has a 1-mile loop, pool, playground, and tennis courts.
The Square/Farmer’s Market
Otherwise known as our “downtown”, has a bunch of local shops and restuarants. The farmer’s market is held at the square every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from the Spring through the Fall with live music and lots of vendors.
Great restaurants and bars. If you “go out” on a Friday or Saturday night, this is where you go.
Mt. Sequoyah is privately owned and used for conferences and retreats. It has trails & lodging but also one of the best views of Fayetteville, especially in the fall.
Gator Golf, simply put…rocks. $5/game. You choose 1 of 2 courses. It’s super fun and if you get a hole-in-one on the last hole you get a coupon for a free game!
Probably our favorite hiking spot. If you walk only about a mile in you get to a great look out. The trail goes on for miles.
And here are our favorite restaurants:
Best BBQ – Whole Hog
Best Pizza – Gusano’s
Best Formal Restaurant – Memaids
Best Burgers – Feltner Brothers
Best All-Around Food – Common Grounds
Best Pasta – Pesto Cafe
Best Breakfast – Stone Mill
I was going to list my favorite things to order at all these, but I thought that may be excessive. Contact me if you want to know. 😉
One of my favorite things about Fayetteville is that if the weather is nice you can spend minimal money and still have a fun day. With the trails, parks, and downtown it’s easy to just walk around and take in the sights. If you live anywhere around Fayetteville I strongly advise visiting!
