The Tourist Attractions in Fayetteville:
Though not swimming in tourist attractions Fayetteville has plenty enough to do to keep visitors occupied for a couple of days at least, and has a large assortment of places to eat and places to stay.
University of Arkansas
Fayetteville’s main claim to fame is for being the home of the University of Arkansas which was founded in 1871. The attractive campus features all the usual things you would expect to find on a university campus and makes for a nice place to walk around. The Old Main building is the oldest remaining university building, completed in 1875, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Clinton House Museum
Anyone interested in the Clinton’s will know that this couple spent their first years together in Arkansas when they both taught at the University. The house they lived in has now been converted into a small museum where visitors can have a tour and see various pieces of memorabilia from both their personal and political lives.
The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks
Though still in construction the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is already taking shape as an impressive botanical garden that will cover an area of 86 acres. Currently visitors can enjoy seasonal plantings and a wildflower meadow as well as a nice lakeside hiking trail and a self-guided tree identification trail.
Devil’s Den State Park
Just outside of Fayetteville is the Devil’s Den State Park. This sizeable park has a number of attractions including places for hiking and mountain biking, plus visitors can use the longer trails for going into the backcountry areas and venturing into the Ozark National Forest. There is a lake as well as a swimming pool, shop, and pavilion and if visitors want to stay longer you can make use of the park’s fully equipped cabins, or bring your tent!
When Should You Visit?:
Fayetteville has a humid subtropical climate and experiences all four seasons. It’s slightly higher elevation means that nighttimes can be a little cooler here than other parts of Arkansas, but the Ozarks are also responsible for blocking some of the really cold weather during the winter. Generally summers are warm to hot and humid while spring and autumn are mild and less humid. Winters can be cold and crisp.
