Fayetteville was recently voted number 7 in USA TODAY's 2014 10Best College Towns. We're honored by the designation and are very proud to be in such great company. Here's what USA TODAY had to say about our little town:
"Located in the stunning Ozark Mountains of Northwestern Arkansas, Fayetteville is home to the state's flagship educational institution, the University of Arkansas. Besides serving as a gateway to the outdoor adventures of the Ozarks, the town is steeped in history: the Trail of Tears and Butterfield Overland Trail both passed through, and several historic buildings used by Civil War troops still stand."
But don't just take their word for it, plan your next visit today!
Calling all adventure lovers! The inaugural Beer & Bagel Off Road Run will be held at Saddlebock Brewery on March 7.
The race is 4 miles of off road running over challenging terrain - and you can forget the crazy antics & insane price tags. At Beer & Bagel races, they let Mother Nature do the talking: Rugged and untamed trails the way running was meant to be. After conquering mother nature at her best, you'll be greeted with an ice cold beer, bagels and a warm bowl of chili, just like mom used to make. And forget about bringing money on race day, everything is included. Oh, and don't forget to party with their mascot, who just happens to be Sasquatch!
We'll see you there - For more information, visit www.beerandbagel.com
