Destination guide

Quaint Fayetteville serves up culture and idyllic parks

Fayetteville, Arkansas’ 3rd largest city, is a bustling university city with a historic Downtown, plenty of home-cooking southern cuisine restaurants, and an abundance of museums and arts centers. Fayetteville has plenty of outdoor wonders to offer too, from its dozens of tree-blanketed parks – many of which have protected nature habitats – to its colorful and fragrant botanic gardens. And with the wide array of Fayetteville vacation rentals on offer, you’re sure to find perfectly individualized accommodation – whether it’s a luxury downtown condo, a spacious townhouse suitable for the whole family, or modern bungalow.

Things to do

Fayetteville’s museums and historic homes

It may be difficult to pull yourself away from the peace, seclusion, and relaxation of your Fayetteville vacation rental, but the city has so many cultural wonders to offer, you’ll be glad you did. History buffs can visit the Clinton House Museum, a quaint 1930s Tudor-revival stonehouse, which the Clinton’s occupied during their time studying in Arkansas. After, tour the atmospheric Confederate Cemetery – a leafy, well-maintained monument of the American Civil War – before stopping by the Arkansas Air Museum, which contains real and replica military aircraft from across the decades.

Activities

Fayetteville is made for sports fans

Fayetteville is big on sports, from its infamous Arkansas Razorbacks football team – who play regular games in the 72,000-capacity Donald W. Reynolds Stadium – to its baseball, basketball, and volleyball teams. If you want to get in on the sports rather than simply spectate, book a round of golf at one of Fayetteville’s many clubs, many of which have fine views of the forest-drenched Ozark Mountains. For fresh Arkansas air and captivating history, stroll around the Wilson Park Historic District, near the University campus, which boasts an abundance of late 19th- and early 20th-century residential buildings.

Weather

It’s all about springtime in flowery Fayetteville

Fayetteville experiences a humid subtropical climate, with 4 distinct seasons. In the summer months, temperatures rise to the mid-80s, and can soar into the low 100s. Spring is a perfect time to visit, when blossom and bright flowers erupt and emerge across the city, and temperatures climb from 60 to the mid-70s. The city is quaint and cozy in the chilly winter months, too, and provides plenty of festive attractions – many Fayetteville vacation rentals also have wood-burning fireplaces.

Natural features

Nature and urban energy in perfect harmony

Fayetteville contains several distinct districts and hotspots – the youthful University of Arkansas campus area and adjacent shopping-mecca of College Avenue, the charming Wilson Park and Mount Nord historic districts, and bustling Downtown, which includes the buzzing entertainment area of Dickson Street. Aside from all this urban energy, Fayetteville celebrates nature and wilderness. The nearby Devil’s Den State Park is full of waterfalls, lakes, and hiking trails that spiral into the neighboring and seemingly-endless mountain-clad Ozark National Forest. Outdoor adventurers can book Fayetteville vacation rentals and cabins amidst this natural scenery.
