5th Best Places to Live in the USA! - 8/8/2018
It depends upon one's perspective in/on life (I lived in Rogers AR for a few years; it's just north but within the same urban sprawl). U.S. News analyzed the 125 most populous metro areas to find the best places to live. Their page is titled: 125 Best Places to Live in the USA! Fayetteville, AR is number 5, meaning there's only 4 other cities in all the USA that ranked higher. Forbes put the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers MSA at #2 on its list of Best Midsize Cities for Jobs. According to the American Lung Association State of the Air 2018 report, NW Arkansas ranks among the best air quality from among all urban metros reporting in. The natural world of the Nature State is still awesome; lots of lakes and forests and wildlife; some of the best fishing in the nation. And the State is not as densely (human) populated as others. The urban core is pedestrian friendly; bike trails galore throughout NW AR; the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center designated Fayetteville as a Bronze Read More

Arkansas is fattening - 3/27/2018
I have been gone from Arkansas for quite a few years now. I lived there for several years, years ago. Prior to moving there, my weight was slightly above a healthy range. While there, it increased by 35 pounds. It is now back to where it was prior to moving there. Arkansas has one of the highest obesity rates in the country. The people I am around now are into fitness, healthy eating, bicycles, hiking, etc. Very few of the restaurants here feature deep fried foods. Being around healthy people and healthy influences tends to make you do the things they do to stay healthy. When you drive around and see giant fitness centers all over the place, and most of the people you associate with have a healthy weight, it naturally tends to influence the way you behave, eat, exercise, Read More

Super cheap - 11/1/2017
I’ve lived in Fayetteville about five years now and I’m 60. Rent, real estate, and most everything else is very cheap here. It's clean. The crime rate is low. The weather is usually pretty good. Winters are short and not that cold. I think there's enough entertainment in the way of restaurants, bars, and shopping, especially if you include the entire northwest Ark. area. And of course college sports. However, health care choices and doctors (specialists) are limited. Incidentally, I wish medical people would stop trying to set me up with a girlfriend. I don't go out with healthcare women anymore. Bad experience with a number of them, especially my first wife.

Fayetteville is too conservative in some ways. For example, it's amazing how many people won't shut up about my military job some 40 years ago (nothing special). Simply being a veteran is an endless source of fascination for many people here. Nearly every time I walk into a large Walmart some stranger makes a remark Read More

Too Expensive - 10/4/2017
Housing hard to find and over priced, high crime and a lot of homeless. Most new buildings in the north part of town. A lot of drugs all over town. Mostly ugly and people range from crazy to druggies to snobs...with some nice people in between...many hate it here and are Read More

Fayetteville, Ark is not a good place to live - 5/21/2016
I read Sandy's review and was very impressed with its honesty and factualness. I used to live there in Fayetteville and I moved away for pretty much EXACTLY the same reasons. I am much happier now in the Great Pacific Northwest. One of the things I love about the northwest is its “inclusiveness”. They go to great lengths to make certain that people feel “included” even if they are not from the northwest and have no extended family here. To give you an example, I was a member of a tennis club in Fayetteville for about a year, years ago. For new adult male members with no tennis partners, to be able to come and play in any type of league or weekly activity with other members their only choice was to show up and be available as a substitute. Often, no subs were needed and they just went home. Not very “inclusive”. By contrast, let me tell you about a local tennis club where I live now. About 3 or 4 evenings per week, there are tennis activities you can go to where you get put Read More

Regret Moving Here - 1/25/2016
For those of you thinking about moving to Fayetteville...DON`T DO IT!
Fayetteville (in fact most of Arkansas) is filthy. Poverty is everywhere. More people than not have no pride in their houses or property. People just pile up junk and garbage out in their yards etc. So many houses look as if they should have been demolished years ago. This also goes for the buildings throughout the city as well. Obviously no ordinances. Going out to eat is almost impossible since every place I have been in is disgustingly gross. Sticky seats and tables, dried on foods on the walls by the seating areas, floors that don`t look like they have been washed in weeks, no gloves being used when handling the food, the list goes on and on. They apparently have no inspectors for anything. I would have thought they would at least have nice Walmarts here since a lot of Walmart exec stuff goes on around here but their Walmarts (especially Springdales) are very sketchy, rundown dives. The parks and lakes Read More

climate - 11/7/2013
Most of the year is fairly mild except during a few weeks of the winter. With mountains and tons of trees all around us, the great climate enhances the beauty of the area. Read More

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN THE WORLD TO LIVE!!!!! - 8/14/2012
Lived in Fayetteville/Springdale area for 17 years, loved it, totally loved it. Housing is fair, prices are great, groceries are not expensive, schools are so of the best in the state. VERY sorry I moved away, will be coming back as soon as I Read More

affordability + access to outdoor fun - 12/18/2011
Fayetteville is a great place to live in Arkansas because of its affordability with housing, education, recreation, and amenities. It is close to state parks and rivers and is improving in its friendliness to sustainability. The major thing lacking in Fayetteville is great museums and nightlife (although Dickson St. is pretty fun). Read More
