A walking tour of the university at the heart of this community reveals the former Clinton home. The downtown teems with galleries and museums.  

Nestled in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas’ northwest corner, the historic destination of Fayetteville combines small-town charm, university culture and Southern hospitality. In the past, Fayetteville played an important role as a Civil War outpost and agricultural settlement, but today the city revolves around education. At its heart lies the prestigious University of Arkansas.

The town’s dynamic culture can be attributed to a progressive population of young students. Find cosmopolitan bars and restaurants, live music and an energetic arts precinct as you explore the historic downtown area. Fayetteville’s 70 parks and more than 40 miles (64.3 kilometers) of hiking trails have helped boost the reputation of the area’s outdoor activities.

Start your visit in Fayetteville Square, the city’s historic heart. Head to the square to familiarize yourself with the downtown area and select maps from the information center. Feel the city’s relaxed pace as you wander the streets. Stop by the square on a Saturday to explore the Fayetteville Farmers Market, a weekly gathering of local farmers and producers that has met since 1973.

The area around Dickson Street is the place to experience the local art and music scene. Watch a play or performance at the Walton Arts Center or visit a gallery along the street to see local art.

Go across town to reach the University of Arkansas. Guided tours of the campus reveal stories of the famous alumni who have studied at there. Bill Clinton, the former U.S. president, and Hillary Clinton both taught at the law school. See their original marital home at the Clinton House Museum.

Arrive in Fayetteville by car, Greyhound bus or Amtrak train from neighboring cities or fly to the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport located just outside the city.

Fayetteville’s mild summers are perfect for exploring the rugged wilderness that surrounds the city. Rent a car to explore the Ozark Mountains and the calm waters of Lake Wedington, where you can fish, swim and kayak.
