While Fayetteville, Arkansas is well-known as the home of the University of Arkansas, there's much more to this city than its reputation as a college town. Families who love to play outside will find ample opportunities for fun in the sun, whether it's hunting for fairies at Terra Studios or canoeing on Lake Fayetteville. Of course, families also can enjoy educational pursuits by exploring Fayetteville's cultural side, which is composed of several historical, art and children's museums.

Not to be outdone, you'll also find plenty of spots to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth, and even a food truck park (Shultertown).
