Travel Awaits ~ ” Throughout the American experience, there have been areas where people flocked to find a better life and a better opportunity. We called them boom-towns. Here, one might find plentiful job opportunities, affordable living, good schools, a thriving arts community, and just about anything one was looking for to increase the joy of living. In the age of COVID, such boom-towns are becoming known as Zoom-towns because the same attributes are becoming even more attractive as working remotely becomes weaved into the fabric of American society.
This line of thought has one community actively working to attract people to their new brand of lifestyle and burgeoning career opportunities for anyone looking for a jump start or slow down. This area of Arkansas is made up of seven communities, Fayetteville, Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, Siloam Springs, Bella Vista, and Lowell. Together, they formed the Northwest Arkansas Council, investing more than $1 million in what they call the Life Works Here initiative. The idea is to bring all kinds of talent to the area.

The area boasts one of the best costs of living, plentiful outdoor lifestyle opportunities, and a nationally ranked art, culture, and food scene. The initiative is focusing on families, career changers, entrepreneurs, artists, and retirees, offering a $10,000 cash incentive to move to the region.
But that isn’t all. These towns are all meccas for outdoorsy people, and much of that is focused on traveling green, or by bicycle. In addition to the $10,000, each recipient will be gifted a street or mountain bike to allow you to take advantage of the 162 miles of paved trails and more than 300 miles of world-class mountain bike trails. If biking isn’t your thing, you can forgo the bikes and enjoy memberships to one of the local museums and other cultural institutions.” ~ Travel Awaits
