Bentonville has become a destination for international businesses of all kinds, thanks to the corporate headquarters of Wal-Mart, and this growth has dramatically expanded the shopping and dining scene as people come from afar to work and visit. Located in the beautiful Ozark region, Bentonville offers plenty of outdoor activities as well, such as golfing, hiking and enjoying a day at the lake. You can rejuvenate at one of the many spas, or perhaps take in a concert at the Arend Arts Center. As the future home to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, this thriving community will continue to offer locals and visitors a small-town feel with big city amenities.
