What Bert Has To Say About Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Metro Area


The so-called Northwest Arkansas region is one of the fastest growing in the country, and the three named cities, Rogers, Springdale, and Fayetteville, plus the elephant- in-the-room Bentonville represent an interesting mix of small cities that all work together and all offer something. The three names cities are located in a north-south line roughly 10 miles apart, while Bentonville lies five miles west of Rogers.
