      A Growing City

      Bentonville is at once a small, welcoming city and at the same time a growing and changing area. It feels less Southern and more Midwestern, in many ways. Very friendly but not in a phony, Mississippi Delta sort of way. Many amenities make it a great place to visit, and, I would imagine, a great place to call home. 21c Museum Hotel is a first-rate, very modern hipster-ish hotel and a bit over the top in its "wokeness". 21c Hotel notwithstanding, my sense is Bentonville's citizens are quietly open-minded and not overly political in nature. Good. There are many restaurants in the Square and beyond that could work in most any city far larger than Bentonville. Walmart is consolidating its headquarters in Bentonville to one main campus, as opposed to the current layout of buildings all across town, so it will be interesting to see the effect of that consolidation on the city. Crystal Bridges Museum of Art is excellent. I never tire of it as they have different exhibits as well as a permanent collection, and the land around it is very inviting.

      Bentonville, AR a Family-Friendly City

      Bentonville is a great place to raise a family with the cost of living being low and there are jobs aplenty! This city is great for those who do not want a big city feel but still want some of the accommodations that a city has to offer and a population of just over 40,000. Bentonville's weather is pretty fantastic, although the summers can be fairly hot. That is not something that I mind though!

      There is plenty to do in and around Bentonville. If you are into the outdoors then there is plenty of fishing, hiking, canoeing, and hunting in the area just outside of the city. You will certainly have no shortage of things to do in Bentonville.

      There are quite a few jobs to be had in Bentonville, with the city being the location for the headquarters of Walmart. There are many jobs to be had with that company and others. The low cost of living and low crime rate makes it a great place me to raise my family.
