Disappointed - 8/16/2008
Fayetteville, home of UA is so culturly behind. So is the city. It's not laid out streetwise, housing, economics. The town is the college and a hospital and tyson. If it weren't for UA, this town would be Read More

Fayetteville - 5/30/2008
Northwest Arkansas in general is a wonderful place to live. Unfortunately there has been quite an influx of illegal immigrants and people from New Orleans, that have been continuously trying to trash the place, but NWA is still nicer than most places. The scenery is gorgeous, and the people are Read More

guality of life - 4/6/2008
When the economic growth came to the Ozark area and the population increased, the influx of outsiders brought about changes to where there is no longer a regional character to the people or area. The cost of living sky rocketed and the cost of housing to the point the quality of life and stability of most average families have been compromised. The actual impact on the environment was effected to where this is no longer a clean near pristine place. The quality of my job in healthcare was horrible: I have never worked in a place with so many disenchanted people and I've never seen place where so many healthcare providers were on mood stabilizers and antidepressants. Again though most were lucky to have jobs with benefits; many were working there with none. As for liberalism it does exsist among most there and diversity is fair but also is judgementalness and cliqishness and much intolerance and that is in all "ball courts", narccism is the norm there. I found Little Rock to be worse Read More

A really nice place... - 11/3/2007
I don't live there and I am fairly new to Arkansas...but if I wanted to live in AR for the rest of my life I would live in Fayetteville. It is a really nice town. From what I have seen very clean, pretty (hills and what not). There are a lot of cultured people there but there are also hicks! Hicks are everywhere people...you cannot get away from them! Some ppl are close to family some are not! What is the big deal?

All in all it is a really pretty place, nice university, nice shops, nice down town area, they recycle, variation of reliagion (did not see churches on every corner which is nice) etc.....

There is tons of nature stuff to do...
I might just move Read More

Low crime? - 9/13/2007
I have read several postings that mention Fayetteville's crime rate as being one of the reasons to live there. Sperling posts crime rates. Fayetteville rates 4 and 5, the US rates 3 and 3, and low numbers mean low crime. I would, though, have to agree that Fayetteville's crime rates are one of the best reasons I could think of to live there, as opposed to its traffic fatality rates, the pct of its pop that speaks intelligible and correct english, the pct of its pop of 55 year old men who are open to new friendships with 55 year old guys from the west, the harsh climate (compare to Seattle), the quality of construction there, the lack of govt regulation and law enforcement, the redness of the state of AR, the redneckness of the state of AR, the idiocy of the states road work policies (doing 180 mile stretch at a time instead of 20 miles on I-40), the high divorce, smoking, bankruptcy and obesity rates, etc. To sum up, altho Fay's crime rates are considerably higher than the rates Read More

Fayetteville . . . Life is Good! - 8/7/2007

Not all things to all people - 8/7/2007
Having read most of the commentary about my fair city, I can say that there is merit to most all of it. Some of the people who were born here (I wasn't) think that they are owed the spoils of the new found progress and success of the region. And yes some are even isolationists; preferring to spend thier free time with those they have known. However, this is not reflective of a majority of the residence since the "boom" began and more and more nonnatives have moved to the area. The infrastructure is also trying to catch up with the growth, and will require patience for commuters. If you moved here from a larger metro area to NW AR you will find that sophistication and culture vary widely, but don't be fooled by the accent. There are a lot of smart people here that have made great sums of money that could live anywhere they choose. Someone that makes thier home here is probably going to like most places with clean air and water, abundant opportunites, and friendly people who still care Read More

Not a lot to do - 3/20/2007
Northwest Arkansas is an okay place to live, especially with low crime, but there's just not a lot to do Read More

Jerry is sad? - 11/23/2006
Alvin, it sounds like you are the one who needs to do some research. FBI.gov clearly shows that the South, as a region, has a higher crime rate than any other region including the west. Even right here on Sperlings best places you can easily bring up a list of the cities with the worst crime rates. Of ALL large cities (metros over a half mil) in the country, one of the top two is in Arkansas, and the other borders on Arkansas, and 8 of the 12 worst are in within 500 miles of Fay. Sperlings rates Fay a 4,5 on crime, the same as the city I am living in. Since more people die in wrecks than from murder, it seems strange that you attribute such little importance to traffic Read More
