Tag Along: Murals of Fayetteville

Today's Tag Along adventure comes from Forrest Addison Roverts and is all about the murals in Fayetteville! All around the NWA area, you'll find buildings decorated with murals by local artists. Most of these can be found in the downtown sections of the cities. Tap the Explore button for an interactive map that will take you on the recommended route. Murals of Fayetteville, Arkansas Author: Forrest Addison Roverts Of the four cities we visited to explore murals, Fayetteville would have to be our favorite. All along Dickson St. and surrounding areas, you'll find great food and other shops to check out. Not to mention A LOT of really cool murals, but our favorite thing to do while visiting here was rent out the electric scooters lol! Find somewhere to park and walk to just about any corner to find an assortment of electric vehicles you can rent and then just cruise all around the downtown area. I will say that if you choose to ride an electric scooter, get the Spin one. They are a good bit faster than VEO and ride up hills a lot easier. Explore Stop 1: Dickson Street Bookshop To start with, here is a mural that can be found on the side of Dickson Street Books in downtown Fayetteville, AR. The best time to view this mural would be before 10am. One the store opens, there are a lot more cars parked along the street. Stop 2: Kith and Kin This next one can be found on the side of Kith and Kin Hair Co. a short drive north of downtown Fayetteville. This is probably one that can be difficult to take the electric scooter to mainly due to traffic. Stop 3: B-Unlimited You'll find two murals on the building of B-Unlimited. One is right out front and the "Fayetteville Loves You" mural is along the side of the building. Stop 4: Matt Miller Mural While you're crusin' on a scooter through downtown Fayetteville, this one is an easy one to swing by and check out. Found pretty much in the heart of downtown Fayetteville. Stop 5: Ravens Next to many great shops and local eateries on Dickson St., you'll find the Ravens mural. This area of Dickson St as well as the parking lot next to this mural can get busy to just be cautious while you're out exploring this one. Stop 6: Harvesting the Winds of Change Mural Found on the side of Grub's in downtown Fayetteville, "Harvesting the Winds of Change" was one of the coolest and possibly my favorite mural. A little fun fact for you: Though you'll find Grub's in multiple cities now, Grub's originally started in Fayetteville, AR. Stop 7: Prelude Breakfast Bar While you're on the scavenge hunt for the amazing murals spread across the downtown Fayetteville area, stop in Prelude Breakfast Bar for some VERY tasty food! Breakfast, brunch, or lunch, this place will certainly satisfy your appetite. Recommended to us was the omelets and pancake flight so I am passing along that same recommendation to you! :) var initGallery = true; var masonry_category_id= 66; var masonry_hash = window.location.hash; masonry_hash = masonry_hash.replace('#',''); var masonry_cat_id_click= ''; if (masonry_hash !== '') { var hasha = masonry_hash.split('-'); var re = new RegExp("^([0-9]+)$"); var hash_category_id = hasha[0]; if (!re.test(hash_category_id)) { hash_category_id = 0;} if(hash_category_id) {initGallery = false; } } Welcome to our Tag Along series!

Tag Along: Family Fun in Uptown Fayetteville

Tag along with Bobbie of Reclaiming Wonders and her adventuresome kids as they explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Uptown district in north Fayetteville. Fayetteville is known for great things to do with kids, and Bobbie’s adventure starts out at a hotel on the bike trail, visits a botanical garden and butterfly house, fuels up with a great burger, then a stop for a colorful mural and musical swings. An after lunch stop at the toy store and a cute boba tea and ice cream stop are just a few of the great things to do with kids in Fayetteville - many accessible by bike trail! Tag along with Bobbie and her kids as they explore a day of family fun in Uptown Fayetteville. Family Fun in Uptown Fayetteville, Arkansas Author:  Bobbie of Reclaiming Wonders You don’t have to travel into the heart of Fayetteville, Arkansas to have a morning of fun. This half-day trip will keep the kids entertained outside. With gardens to explore, trails to ride, and giant swings, this little adventure has something for all members of the family. A delicious lunch and cold snack will keep even the most tired parents fueled. Explore Stop 1: Courtyard by Marriott Stay near the action and sleep in comfort at this hotel away from the business of downtown. This north Fayetteville hotel is high quality with excellent staff, a gourmet paid breakfast, and an excellent location only minutes from endless stores and restaurants. With plenty of indoor and outdoor gathering places, this Courtyard guarantees that hotel time doesn't mean you're stuck in your room. Stop 2: Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks This north Fayetteville garden is a beautiful garden experience with twelve themed gardens. Come visit Arkansas' only butterfly garden in a beautiful setting. Kids will love the children's garden, full of magical details and hidden corners. Let them climb into the barn while you sit by in the shade. Make sure you check the online calendar to see about special classes or events that might be occurring during your visit. Stop 3: Smitty's Garage Burgers & Beer It’s time for lunch! Grab a fancy burger, taco, or salad, and don’t miss out on adding the truffle fries. Don’t forget your drink; this restaurant even has good nugget ice. If the weather is good, plan to eat outside on the patio and let the kids enjoy the oversized Connect Four game while you wait for your food. Stop 4: Kindness & Joy Toys When you're done with your burger, head next door to this locally-owned toy store. They have every possible book, craft project, stuffed animal, project, or game you could possibly want. Although they do have some well-known games and toys, many of the items you will find at this store cannot be found in the big stores. You've been warned: Your kids will be able to convince you to buy something because these aren't your standard junky toys! Stop 5: Sound Swings This trio of adult-sized swings has a secret! Created by a local Fayetteville artist Craig Colorusso, each of the three giants swings makes a tone when you are swinging. Come with two other friends, and the three of you can make your own song… and giggle quite a bit. This interactive outdoor art installation will make everyone love art. Take the time to take a picture at the colorful wall mural nearby. If you have your scooters in the car, go for a ride along the Mud Creek Trail to get out some extra kid energy. Stop 6: BoBo's Ribbon Ice Bobo’s is the final stop for a cold drink after getting sweaty on the trail. Create your first boba drink by choosing your flavored drink and bursting pearls. Not adventurous enough for this yet? Order your ribbon ice by picking out the flavor of the shaved ice cream with toppings and a drizzle. It's like shaved ice made from a creamy ice cream mix. A very unique snack that will become a favorite. if(typeof(droppicsAutobrowse)==="undefined"){var droppicsAutobrowse = [];}droppicsAutobrowse[67]=["",""]var initGallery = true; var masonry_category_id= 67; var masonry_hash = window.location.hash; masonry_hash = masonry_hash.replace('#',''); var masonry_cat_id_click= ''; if (masonry_hash !== '') { var hasha = masonry_hash.split('-'); var re = new RegExp("^([0-9]+)$"); var hash_category_id = hasha[0]; if (!re.test(hash_category_id)) { hash_category_id = 0;} if(hash_category_id) {initGallery = false; } } Welcome to our Tag Along series!
