Fayetteville is the third-largest city in Arkansas. It sits on the outskirts of the Boston Mountains, deep within the Ozarks. The city is located within the county that has been home to the University of Arkansas since the institution's founding in 1871. When classes are in session, the thousands of students on campus drastically change the city's demographics. Forbes ranked Fayetteville as the 8th-best city for Business and Careers, and U.S. News ranked the city as one of the best places to retire, making it an ideal location for students, recent college graduates, and retirees alike. Fayetteville's culture is a combination of a Southern city and a college town. The city derives a cultural identity from the University of Arkansas, exhibiting many trademarks of a college town such as a prominent arts and music scene, and a college-oriented bar/restaurant district.
