Camping in and around Northwest Arkansas just got so much easier. Explore Eden is based in Fayetteville and partners with local land owners to create exclusive campsites in beautiful areas. 

  • Hosts: The platform works similarly to Airbnb, where private property owners can host people on their land and make some passive income as well as offer local perspectives. 
  • Explorers: Campers are able to venture to beautiful landscapes and have total privacy with all the unique features of each individual location. The app for land owners and explorers to interact will be in the app stores soon!

Evening's out are getting better and better in Northwest Arkansas with new spaces to dine and hang all the time.

  • Style: There’s a new dive in downtown Rogers called The Five6. It has a ritzy vibe, advertising itself as an “upscale eclectic space.” The Five6 has a full bar, local craft beers, and wine to drink and a full, fancy menu too.
