30 J A N U A R Y / F E B R U A R Y 2 0 1 7 N orthwest Arkansas is exploding with creativity. The wooded landscape and serenity of the Ozark Mountains have long made the area an idyllic getaway destination, complete with postcard charm and a timeless beauty that have drawn visitors decade after decade. But Bentonville, Fayetteville, Eureka Springs and Fort Smith are not places that time forgot; on the contrary, progress and innovation have brought dynamic attractions and great new visitor experiences throughout the region. The 2011 opening of the famous Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art sent a bolt of creative energy throughout Bentonville and beyond, sparking new devel- opments and concepts that are adding layers of fun and fl avor to this region of the state. In addition to old favorite attractions, groups that visit northwest Arkansas today will fi nd ample opportunities to engage the arts, indulge their senses, interact with history and discover the desti- nation in new ways.
