The Best of Northwest Arkansas Top 10 welcomes you to its 8th edition of the top 10 lists businesses can’t pay to be on. Thanks to you, our valued readers, the magazine continues to grow each and every month. Our powerful social media network, which is adding new followers at breakneck speed, makes it possible for us to engage our target market literally instantaneously. Avid readers can’t wait for each new issue’s release so they can find out about the top places to stay, play and dine in NWA.
Of course everyone wants to know how we choose the winners for our Top 10 lists, and while the actual formula is proprietary, simply put, we use an algorithm that is based on thousands of online reviews, select reader polls and the undercover experiences of members of the NWATravelGuide.com’s street team. The street team is like a group of mystery shoppers. Using this three pronged research method, we are able to sort and select with considerable certainty the Top 10 in any particular category.
As you know, the Top 10 magazine is free for our readers enjoyment. While we do accept advertising, no business can pay to be on one of our Top 10 lists. This practice avoids even the hint of impropriety, and establishes our lists as reliable sources for the best of what Northwest Arkansas has to offer in more than 60 categories.
If a business appears on one of our lists, it means that you, the consumer, can expect a delightful experience when you choose to frequent that particular business. This is a wonderful way to showcase NWA’s outstanding places to eat, play and stay. When visitors experience what we have to offer, they are sure to return, and they’re also sure to spread the word about our amazing corner of the state.
This issue features eateries, holiday things to do, and awesome places to stay. Visitors, newcomers and residents alike can use the magazine as a convenient guide for discovering excellent restaurants, accommodations and exciting things to do.
All existing categories have been updated, and we’ve also added some terrific new ones:
