Springdale: A Perfect Family Getaway

Thinking about getting out of the house this summer? Springdale, nestled in the heart of Northwest Arkansas, has all the ingredients for a fun family vacation.

Try your hand at the archery ranges of the J.B. & Johnelle Hunt Family Ozark Highlands Nature Center, then test your mountain bike skills at Fitzgerald Mountain or at Runway Bike Park, the nation’s largest pump track, or skate year-round on the region’s only ice rink at The Jones Center.

To take in the beauty of our local landscape, soar over the Ozarks in a helicopter tour or step back in time on an excursion train ride through the Boston Mountains. Be sure to come during one of our many live music and dance festivals too.

When you’re ready to sit down and relax, you can sample local beer and wine crafted right here in Springdale and enjoy the only craft cidery in Arkansas. You can even enjoy a show at the Rodeo of the Ozarks this June or catch a baseball game at the Arvest Ballpark.

We’re centrally located for all your Northwest Arkansas travel plans. We’re only 20 minutes from the renowned Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and 15 minutes away from the University of Arkansas campus and athletic venues.
