Open Air for Food & Nightlife
Fayetteville is already known for its “patio weather.” But, the ORA and other measures taken by the city — allowing bars and restaurants to create extended seating areas outside, and allowing live-music venues to set up stages outside — have allowed both residents and visitors to continue safely enjoying some Fayetteville favorites.
A Bike-Friendly City with World Competition
Fayetteville’s 40 miles of paved and natural trails are all connected by the Razorback Regional Greenway, a paved, multi-use trail that starts in Fayetteville and runs through Northwest Arkansas. So, getting around town — either on a bike you bring or one of our ride-share bikes or scooters — can be an adventure in itself.
Major cycling event coming up this year include the OZ Trails U.S. Tour Cup in April (UCI U.S. Cup Mountain Bike Series) and FayetteCross 2021 in October (UCI World Cup), and January next year Fayetteville welcomes the world for the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Championships — only the second time the event has been held in America!
Enjoy the Outdoors and Arts in Fayetteville
Fayetteville's arts culture includes a wide variety of visual and performing arts throughout our community, which invests in and supports its local artists. Actually, art can be found around every corner — sometimes literally! Public art by both local and internationally renowned artists is scattered throughout the city. Don't just take our word for it; listen to these locals tell you all about it.
