Crime is increasing by the month and the crime rate is higher than most metro areas of the U.S. The influx of Texans and Oklahomans is partially to blame on that, as well as people that are being priced out of cities and are attracted to low cost of living, but that comes at a price to our area - it attracts people lacking in skills compared to others. Add to the fact that you drive 5 miles outside of Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and you are in hillbilly territory.

No diversity, very few good restaurants compared to the bigger cities. Good hiking, outdoors, but I'd wager only 15% of the people here actually do outdoor actitivies. We are the fattest state in the U.S.

Burglary/Theft is skyrocketing.. housing costs are increasing while wages are stagnant. Still no real good restaurants in the area, although if you're looking for pizza there's plenty of places. Area is good if you're an outdoorsman, but if you are not, then it is below average. Walmart and chicken farms dominate the industries, that and JB Hunt.

Watch out for the areas south of Fayetteville like Greenland, West Fork, etc., Big m**h problems there, lots of theft, breaking in, etc. Very bad schools except for Shiloh and Fayetteville High.

Lack of diversity, closeted racism, lots of delusion amongst residents. School is home to an average university and lots of economic disparity. Home of Walmart, so it's basically a slave to Walmart.

Bible Belt, poor schools, rising crime.

Bad schools, no diversity, rundown in many parts of town. Dominated by Walmart.

Watch out for the homeless and methheads. Also 5 miles outside of town is flooded with m**h labs.
