Big little town - 3/1/2019
What’s not to like about this charming city set in the gorgeous North West Arkansas. It has the best air quality of the nation, serene natural beauty, all the amenities of a large down with a small town feel. There are job opportunities, affordable housing, parks, music venues, cultural museums. Housing values are at a steady upward climb if 6.7%. Win win for everyone. With Steady growth the city will need to continue to proceed with continued road widening but all things point to a competent structure that will maintain its families needs without compromising a wonderful living experience for all families. I love this place, my families been here for over 30 Read More

An honest review - 2/25/2019
Town is growing to quickly; reminds me of Las Vegas in the 90's. people moved here because it was small and southern; now it is being overrun by West Coast folks who are fleeing the damage they did to the West Coast and bringing those same attitudes here. It is not Read More

Traffic, population overgrowth - 7/11/2018
We haved lived in Bentonville nearly 10 yrs. during which time we have seen massive growth both in tourism and residents. The infrastructure is not there and schools are having a hard time keeping pace. They are building a school every 2 years meaning property taxes are rising quickly. I miss my small town feel and ease of getting around. It is no Dallas but there is a reason I chose Bentonville and it was not Walmart. The schools are fantastic and cost of living is relatively low ( for now). I feel like the city needs better planning to get ahead of the growth or even to slow the growth. Apartments are going up everywhere to house the workers Walmart brings in on visas. Schools must rezone boundary lines about every 2 years meaning your child may change schools that often. I am still very glad I live there and have no plans to move Read More

in a nut shell - 11/21/2010
NWA in a nut shell. its a corporate town. most people are no here any longer than 3 yrs. or so. they do their time here as a vendor or with Wal-MART. Most people are nice. The majority are from the northeast, Texas or California. Primarily big cities. Traffic is more than the towns can handle. They're aren't enough bypasses and rush hours are terrible. They're seems to be quite a division demographically speaking. Corporate transplant and lower income. It's cosmopolitan here with lots of stores. Not much else unless you go to Branson, Mo. which is 2 hrs. away. Eureka Springs is on the way. Read More

68% growth in the next 10 years - 2/22/2007
a overwelming 1 million people expected to move to the bentonvile-fayetteville area in the next 15 years over 3,000 people a month move to this area. the total amount of the four city metro area for the next 10 years of growth combined is over 200%.

because of the growth: construction,retail,hospitals,food service,business marketing,and production have been needed to fill these demands.
i have watched this place grow into a major metro area. the expensive high rise construction litters the landscape off of I-540. showing the muscle of retail giant Read More

Sam Walton's turning over in his grave seeing what - 10/12/2006
Since Mr. Sam Walton (rest in peace old man, you had good intentions) passed away in 1992, his family and those now in power of his empire are greedily destroying what "Daddy Sam" had anticipated. Recently, the powers that be have incorporated policy that people who "want to do business with WalMart must at least hold an office in Bentonville." Guess what? NOW, there's million dollar homes popping up, traffic on these tiny little streets that can't handle it, and the natives are PIZZED OFF! One native in particular, an elderly woman who had lived in the area 50+ years told me that "they're mowing down all this beautiful natural things, like streams and pastures, to put up new yuppie housing!" Employees of "Home office" wear their badges on display more than a police officer would display his/her shield. Walmart has its own bank (ARVEST) and church (Cornerstone I think it was called; it was this HUGE church on the outskirts south of Rogers) among other things. Mr. Sam did this economy Read More
