Fayetteville AR is a great place to live.  Get a general overview on Wikipedia, or check out the award winning farmers market, civil war sites, Buffalo river country,  or who is playing at the Arkansas Music Pavilion. Wether you are into art galleries or trout fishing, this area is amazing.  Oh, and the geology is excellent!
