I was recently fairly insulted by a blogger who mentioned stopping in Arkansas for their roadtrip, and I assumed from the other towns she claimed to visit, it had to have been the Northwest Arkansas area (best part of Arkansas, in other words). While she named specific towns on their trip otherwise, she simply named the state and that they crossed the stateline just to say the kids have been there, "no offense" to Arkansans.
I get the stigma but she's only perpetuating it. There are loads of fun activities to do in Northwest Arkansas, so I thought I would share a few with you... keep in mind, this is only an overview... but perhaps I'll review the following more in-depth in future posts!

1. The 112 Drive In: If there's a particular new movie out I lean towards AMC Fiesta Square instead of the Malco Razorback (even though, fun fact, I worked there for the first couple of months when I moved to Fayetteville!)--it may not be quite as nice (i.e. overdue for a remodel) but the tickets are far cheaper and I've never had to worry about it selling out if I get there last minute. But what's even far more special is the drive in, which Fayetteville is so lucky to have. While it may be in need of a renovation as well, and the options aren't always swell, there is nothing cooler than packing up your snacks and blankets into your vehicle (and maybe even your dog...) and leaning your seat back for the big screen.
