Jewel of the Natural State
Nestled in the breathtaking beauty of the Ozark Mountains, northwest Arkansas is consistently named one of the nation’s best places to live, visit, or retire. The region, with a population of about 550,000, is the headquarters for industry leaders such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, Tyson Foods, Simmons Foods, and J.B. Hunt, as well as other successful companies.
Northwest Arkansas is also home to the University of Arkansas system’s flagship campus. These are just a few of the reasons that northwest Arkansas is the fastest growing region in the state and the 14th-fastest-growing metro area in the U.S.
In addition to the natural beauty of the area, which includes the Buffalo National River (America’s first National River), forward-thinking leadership in northwest Arkansas has enabled the region to establish world-class amenities, including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Walmart AMP, Arvest Ballpark, the Scott Family Amazeum, the Walton Arts Center, and the Razorback Regional Greenway, a robust urban trail system for bicyclists, walkers, and joggers.
Northwest Arkansas is not just a region. It is a way of life.
