A small town with big ambitions, Bentonville had become a bastion of authentic living what with a burgeoning arts community, flourishing food scene, and an impressive network of biking trails and parks. The city of Bentonville truly is a new American town blossoming into a cultural epicenter right before our eyes.
The 2011 opening of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art quickly put Bentonville on the art world map and soon became the harbinger of an arts renaissance in the city. Emerging in 2015, the Bentonville Film Festival champions women and diverse voices in all forms of media. The culinary identity of Bentonville has exploded in the last few years: locals can be found in staples like Pressroom and Onyx Coffee Lab, dining on family-style Italian fare at Tavola Trattoria; seasonal fare at Tusk and Trotter; and wood oven pizzas at Oven and Tap. Nestled along the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Bentonville is the perfect home base to explore all the outdoorsy goodness that Arkansas – aptly called “The Natural State” – has to offer. Whether on foot or two wheels, outdoorsy types relish the bevy of hiking and biking paths, as well as world class all-terrain mountain bike trails. Need some biking gear? Pop into Phat Tire bike shop for all your cycling needs. Also a great destination for family travel, Bentonville is home to the Scott Family Amazeum and family experiences at Crystal Bridges.
