Fayetteville, Arkansas, is the perfect fall destination, whether you’re coming with loved ones, besties or traveling solo. Fayetteville is surrounded by the Ozarks and Boston Mountains, which have some of the most breathtaking fall foliage in the country and offer endless activities in the outdoors, from trail running and hiking to fishing to mountain biking.

This eclectic community has countless family friendly activities; legendary nightlife and entertainment, including live music and performance arts; dining options from elegant and quirky restaurants to food trucks; boutiques for shopping; events nearly every weekend; and more.

Enjoy the Outdoors and Arts in Fayetteville

Two of the most popular things to do in Fayetteville are enjoying the abundance of outdoor activities and the flourishing arts scene. Since Fayetteville has a temperate climate year round, visitors can play outside during every season, whether it’s hiking, biking or floating a nearby river. Fayetteville’s arts culture includes a wide variety of visual and performing arts throughout our community, which invests in and supports its local artists. Don’t just take our word for it; listen to these locals tell you all about it.
