Seated in the Ozark Mountains and home to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville is known as a prominent academic center. Fayetteville’s innovative personality and artistic expression can be found flowing from the University’s campus and into the streets - in the form of public art.
Summer activities and ways to celebrate the arts are looking a little different this year - as is everything. Lucky for us, many of Fayetteville’s theatres and studios are taking performances, classes and acts to the virtual stage. We are so excited to see that Art’s Live Theatre is expanding its education offerings throughout the summer with the goal of putting young artists at center stage.
A favorite pastime in Fayetteville is a sport played a lot like golf but uses flying discs instead of clubs and golf balls. Of course, we are talking about Disc Golf! This sport has been woven into the fabric of the Fayetteville outdoor recreational scene and is gaining in popularity especially this year. Disc golf is an activity that will bring you to the shores of Fayetteville’s first aquafer at Lake Fayetteville and wind you through the woods of our second oldest park. With two 18-hole courses and several 9-hole courses, no matter what your skill level is, there is a place and a friend here in Fayetteville to play disc golf with you. After a day out on the course, be sure to check out the many great restaurants in Fayetteville and breweries on the Fayetteville Ale Trail.
While a good portion of Fayetteville’s Centennial Park at Millsap Mountain is still under construction in the southwest area of the city, the future home of the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Championships has opened the first of a series of mountain bike trails - with more nearing completion.
Thanks to its location in the Ozark Mountains, Fayetteville is surrounded by outdoor beauty, which makes for spectacular cycling, river floats, hiking trails and pretty much everything you like to do in nature. This also includes scenic car and motorcycle rides, as Northwest Arkansas is home to some of the most memorable backroads and highways in the country.
