Fayetteville Arkansas is not only home to 80,000 people, it is also the home of the University of Arkansas. With a student population of over 26,000 and a faculty and staff of over 4,000, the university is a major economic contributor to the local economy.
Fayetteville is also located close to the headquarters of the world’s largest retailer – Walmart. In addition, Fayetteville is centrally located to many of Walmart’s largest suppliers, making it an ideal choice to stay in during business trips that involve dealings with Walmart.
In addition to a perfect location for business, Fayetteville offers many wonderful recreational opportunites. Jogging tracks, many parks and golf courses and the new Walmart AMP that features world-renowned concerts throughout the summer months.
Featuring a temperate climate almost year round, Fayetteville Arkansas is the perfect choice for pleasure or business travel.
Meetings at Walmart headquarters?
Fayetteville is located a short drive from Bentonville Arkansas, the home of Walmart. And since Fayetteville is central to many companies that service Walmart such as Tyson Foods, Fayetteville is often the first choice for business travelers. Also, Fayetteville has a wide variety of accommodations available so you can find any type of room to suit your budget easily.
Want to have fun?
Fayetteville Arkansas has great things to do, both day and night. Had a hard day at work and want to unwind and watch some live music? Head on down to George’s Majestic Lounge which has been serving up great times for almost 90 years! George’s is located just a short distance from our favorite hotel – The Courtyard Fayetteville.
Daytime activities are so numerous. Right behind the Courtyard Fayetteville is a large jogging track – for those fitness minded people. Then you can head back to the hotel for a relaxing whirlpool.
Or enjoy a round of golf on one of the many local golf courses. There are a dozen or more public and semi-public golf courses within a short drive of this or any hotel in the area.
Visiting your children at school
If you are one of the fortunate parents’ to have their child enrolled at the University of Arkansas, there is always a place for you to stay if you are not local to the area. Because of the large amount of hotels in the area there is virtually always a room available somewhere and almost always at very reasonable prices. I have stayed at the Courtyard Fayetteville many times and almost always for a cheaper price than I would pay for a dingy motel room in most other cities.
Last but not least in our list today is a simple vacation. Whether you live close by or far away, Fayetteville is a wonderful place to visit for the reasons we have listed in this article, but many more as well.
