I lived in Springdale, AR for about one year while my mother was there. I relocated from Charlotte, NC to the city. If you like people, then this is the city to move to. I have dealt with a lot of people in my life, but I have never met as many friendly people as I have in Springdale. There are also many things to do outdoors. There are not that many shopping areas or venues inside where you can have fun, but there is enough to do.
I love history, so I was excited to see that there are so many museums in the city. One of the museums that I visited was the Shiloh Museum. There are the typical exhibits that don't move, but one of my favorite things was the live programs. The museum has several different shows through the year that tell about the Ozarks. A barn is located at the museum that you can walk through to find out about early life in the area. The city also enjoys festivals. I think that there was a festival every other month while I was there. The festivals are full of music, laughter and fun. We sat on the sidewalks of the town to watch most of the parades in the festival, but some of them had vendors we could shop from.
One of the things that I like to do is eat. Springdale does not have a big selection of restaurants. The restaurants they do have are fairly similar to each other. Most of them feature hamburgers and grilled food. Many of the restaurants also serve steak. I did notice that there are several hotels in the city. If you are planning a trip to the area, you will not have any trouble finding somewhere to stay. This is also a big sports city, so be sure to check out a baseball game or two while you are there.
