Here We Go Again – Another “Best Places” Award for Fayetteville

Another honor for Fayetteville, this time by Southern Living Magazine. This time for being one of the best college towns in the nation.

Fayetteville has been recognized repeatedly by Kiplinger Magazine, U.S. News & World Report, Sperling’s Best Places, Forbes and others.

Southern Living took a different perspective for their rankings. Their report focused on best college towns. They excluded towns with populations over 200,000 because they were looking for towns where the colleges/universities provided a very strong impact on the town’ standard of living and economies.

Thus it is no surprise to see Fayetteville ranked #17 overall. Our city offers a lively social scene with support of the arts, affordable and attractive restaurants, and many independent shops with everything students want.

Other factors Southern Living found positive about Fayetteville are a dedicated and active alumni base and good old-fashioned Southern charm.

I’m always happy to see prestigious organizations recognize the many positive aspects of living in NW Arkansas.
