Review of Fayetteville, Arkansas


5th Best Places to Live in the USA!
Star Rating - 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 Level Walk Friendly Community for its walkability initiatives and programs. Gentle winters bless the region b/c it's where the Midwest meets the South. Kiplinger's 50 Best Places to Retire in the US 2018, also has Fayetteville at the #5 spot. The U of Arkansas is often ranked high for a variety of reasons, as is the Farmers market. The cost of living in Fayetteville is 11% lower than the national average. It's all about perspective. But for every 1 positive response to anything (online or otherwise), there's a hundred negative's. It's not where U are that matters; it's who U are, anywhere U are!
