A little bit about Bentonville, AR

Venture to the northwest corner of Arkansas to reach Bentonville, a vibrant and growing city that packs a lot of fun into its downtown and the surrounding foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Mountain biking is its main claim to fame, with a vast network of bike trails for all abilities winding from downtown through the hilly, forested countryside. The city’s cultural scene draws visitors from all over to explore Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, The Momentary, the Museum of Native American History and the hands-on Scott Family Amazeum. Don’t forget the Walmart Museum, set in the original five-and-dime store, and the lively collection of public art scattered around town.
