This week, Mockingbird Kitchen’s Chef Chrissy Sanderson was included on USA Today’s list “50 States: 50 Female Chefs.”
Mockingbird Kitchen in Fayetteville, which celebrates its second anniversary this month, serves new American cuisine and is regularly listed among the best restaurants in Northwest Arkansas.
Though Italian by birth, the pizza has certainly become a staple of American cuisine, and Fayetteville offers a plethora of choices when it comes to great pizza restaurants.
Pizza is a funny thing. It’s simple — dough, sauce, cheese, toppings — yet comes in a seemingly endless multitude of varieties and combinations, which allows it to be a personal experience, though it’s usually shared with others.
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. Here are a few popular river floats to get you started.
