Rogers, Arkansas

New Meets Nostalgic in Northwest Arkansas

You might be drawn to Rogers, Arkansas for its gorgeous natural scenery, but as you’ll find, its gourmet restaurants, rich arts and culture scene, and bustling shopping will make you want to stick around.

Northwest Arkansas is rich with attractions, no matter what your interest—and the best part is: the heart and soul of small-town America are alive and well here, even though it’s one of the fastest-growing places in the nation.

Explore the brick-lined streets of Historic Downtown Rogers, where farm-to-table restaurants, independent boutiques and friendly shopkeepers await. Go treasure hunting at one-of-a-kind antique shops, or browse handmade quilts, jewelry and décor at bustling arts and crafts fairs. This is also the ultimate destination for brand name shopping in the region. Stock up on designer labels at the open-air Pinnacle Hills Promenade or at the indoor Northwest Arkansas Mall.

For arts and culture, explore a collection of work by American artists, including 19th-century paintings, outdoor sculptures surrounded by nature trails, and even a Usonian home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at nearby Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. In Historic Downtown Rogers, visit local artists’ studios and photography galleries. At night, watch dance performances and theatrical productions at the Arkansas Arts Academy, catch a hit Broadway musical at Victory Theater, presented by Arkansas Public Theatre, or stop into a restaurant or bar offering live music.

History buffs will love uncovering the local stories at Rogers Historical Museum.

And for the outdoors enthusiast, take your pick from well-maintained parks, water fun on Beaver Lake, and hiking and biking on a latticework of more than 200 miles of hard and soft-surface trails across the breathtaking Ozarks Mountain Country.

From scenic singletrack trails to brand name shopping to foodie splendors, it’s all possible in Rogers.
