The Northwest Arkansas Travel Guide and the Best of NWA, Top 10  are privately owned by natives of Northwest Arkansas.  It isn’t part of a state tourism or any local convention visitor bureau.  It was born out of a wish to offer both visitors, newcomers and residents the opportunity to experience the best of what NWA has to offer. 

We don’t promote businesses based on memberships, clubs, associations or anything like that.  We simply showcase the best that Northwest Arkansas has to offer. The Northwest Arkansas Travel Guide is unique in that everything we do is to offer both residents and visitors the most exciting experience in NWA.

Here are a few reviews below:

It’s a Reminder of What a Great Area Northwest Arkansas Is!

As a resident of NWA, I’m a huge fan of Northwest Arkansas Travel Guide. It’s so important to know and utilize the great things this area has to offer, from special events to restaurants to breweries and everything in between, this magazine offers the best of the best! As an area musician, I also appreciate Northwest Travel Guide. The magazine lists many venues that I have the frequent pleasure of entertaining AND if you catch them on social media, they will give the occasional shout out to other musicians like myself. It’s a reminder of what a great area Northwest Arkansas is!

I think this guide is such a great and needed asset for NWA!

All of us at Bleachers love the NWA travel guide! It’s the only magazine we keep on our counter because we feel it appeals best to both our local customers and visitors alike.

We actually have several locals who stop in specifically to pick up the latest edition. You know, as a lifelong native I thought I was familiar with everything in the area, yet, I’m continually amazed that in each new addition there’s at least a handful of places that I had not previously heard of.

I think this guide is such a great and needed asset for NWA!

The top guide Lynn West knows the area and the people at Ground Zero.

A great guide relieves one of that terrible fog of unknowing and tiresome internet searching. Lynn West and her dedicated talented team have scouted the very heart of Northwest Arkansas for culinary and cultural diamonds previously known only to locals.

My wife and I have lived in Bentonville since 1974-you shall find no more reliable friend than this classy convenient publication.

 Be Entertained!

If you have purchased this travel guide book about Northwest Arkansas you and your family are in for a treat. When I got mine I was entertained, spell bound, and well fed for a few weeks. You will find History, Entertainment, and Education articles for the entire family from kids to grandma and grandpa. See the good Things Twice!

This book tells you everything about food and activities in the area. Great resource.

I’ve been using this book since the first edition. This area is growing so fast that new restaurants pop up all the time. I like all the categories so I can try new places. The photos are great and tempt me to try new things. Wish other areas had books like this.

Filled with all the Newest Restaurants and Attractions

The Best of Northwest Arkansas Top 10 is a great travel guide filled with all the newest restaurants and attractions. Lynn & Lanie put together a great magazine quarterly. I always make a point of giving newcomers & customers a copy of The Best of Northwest Arkansas Top 10. Current customers & NWA residents also enjoy picking up a current copy of the magazine when they come into the bank.

My “go to” Guide Since I Moved to Fayetteville From St. Louis

The Best of Northwest Arkansas Official Top 10 has been my “go to” guide since I moved to Fayetteville from St. Louis a year ago. My husband and I knew no one to ask for advice and found this magazine at the hair salon. I’ve referred to the Top 10 for everything from restaurants, hiking trails, fishing, hotels, museums, week-end getaways, music venues and shopping. It has truly made out transition to Northwest Arkansas a wonderful experience.

One of my favorite aspects of using The Top 10 is the categories that are included in the list. We had friends in from New York who are gluten free and I was stumped as to where we would go for dinner. The magazine lists restaurants by categories such as Italian, best wings, best burgers, pizza, sushi, Indian cuisine and of course gluten free restaurants! The list is also broken down into specific areas so that when we were in Bentonville, we knew the best gluten free choices there as well.

We also needed to find some awesome things to do for our visitors. Stumped again, I searched the magazine. Of course, it lists experiences and swimming spots for the various areas as well as general “things to do” in Northwest Arkansas. Our friends were genuinely impressed with the area and our choices for the itinerary that we set up for their visit.

Thank you to the staff of The Best of Northwest Arkansas Top 10! You have helped me tremendously and I don’t know what I would have done without your recommendations.

Businesses Cannot “Pay-Their-Way” To Be On The List

I trust the Guide because they use an unbiased approach to recommending services and products—since businesses cannot “pay-their-way” to be on the list. They are my go-to list when I need a new product or service in NWA.

The kids things to do and where kids eat free section are enough of a reason for me to keep a copy on hand

Since discovering the NWA Travel Guide I find myself picking it up often to learn about the top restaurants and businesses in my area. The kids things to do and where kids eat free section are enough of a reason for me to keep a copy on hand.

Never Seen Something So Beneficial To Our Area

First, I have never had a guest compliment any of the magazines we put in our condo’s. Today, I had a guest come in and she was raving about how wonderful your magazine was. She was so impressed with the information that was covered about food, fun etc. She went on and on about how she’s never seen something so beneficial to our area. It truly is a wonderful magazine and we’re happy to be a part of it!!
