The Arkansas Times’ 2018 Readers Choice Awards have been announced, and several Fayetteville restaurants took home best-of honors in the “Around the State” categories or were included as finalists.
Fayetteville’s culinary scene is one of the main reasons people enjoy visiting, as the city’s restaurants feature a wide range of offerings, from classic staples to innovative cuisine to farm-to-table.
Fayetteville is home to one of the few remaining drive-in theaters left in Arkansas. In fact, there are only about 330 left in the entire United States.
Located at 2552 Highway 112, the 112 Drive-In Theatre is one of the most popular things to do in Fayetteville, as it harks back to an almost-forgotten era of cinema history, allowing guests to travel back in time while enjoying the newest movies from Hollywood, as well as some of its classics.

One of the most popular reasons everyone comes to Fayetteville is to experience the outdoors in the Ozarks, whether it’s hiking and mountain biking the trail system or birdwatching and picnicking in one of Fayetteville’s 3,000 acres of natural areas and parks.
Along with having ample outdoor opportunities within the city, another great aspect of Fayetteville is that the city is surrounded by mountains, forests and rivers that offer a variety of outdoor adventures. Guests can stay in the comforts of a hotel and soon be transported into the natural beauty of Northwest Arkansas with a quick drive — and come back the same day for dining, entertainment and nightlife.
The nearby scenic rivers of the Ozarks make for excellent day floats, also offering plenty of opportunities for fishing and hiking. Whether you and your crew are looking for a half-day or full-day float, on canoes or kayaks, there are plenty of options right outside of Fayetteville.
