The park’s landscape consists of plateaus, ridges, valleys, and streams featuring an upland forest of oak, hickory and pine. Many water features including disappearing streams, springs and seeps have carved the many hollows in this fragile limestone landscape and created

Boating, sailing, scuba diving, water skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, swimming and picnicking are some exciting ways to enjoy the outdoors on Beaver Lake. In addition to recreational activities on the water, the area also offers spelunking in natural caverns, biking and walking on beautiful greenways and paved trails, and a variety of unique outdoor adventures including a drive-through safari, a wildlife refuge, a working waterpowered grist mill, botanical gardens and a natural science center.
SCUBA DIVING Beaver Lake waters are deep, clean, and clear bringing scuba divers from not only Arkansas, but also Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and beyond. Beaver Lake is optimal for scuba diving because the water depth (300 feet in areas) and visibility are great. On the north side of the lake you can often view the submerged expanse of the lake. There are sunken boats and old cars, and in some areas, there are even sunken statues, placed by locals. One place that is very popular for scuba diving is The Old Foundation (located at Monte Ne on the edge of Beaver Lake
near Rogers) which is often under water. It once was a world-class resort built in the 1800s that had the world’s two biggest hotels at the time. On days when the lake is low, visitors can still see the foundations of the resort, the large bridges and sometimes the resort’s amphitheater. The most common use of scuba diving in Beaver Lake is for schools. Many groups come to Beaver Lake to practice their diving to get a license such as their open water dive. Some come simply to brush up on their skills before heading out on vacation. Lost Bridge Marina offers pontoon boats for half-day and full day rentals, perfect for scuba diving groups. The marina also offers scuba accessories and air tank refills for your convenience. LostBridgeMarina.com
WATER SKIING & WAKEBOARDING Beaver Lake’s smaller coves offer the perfect spots for water skiing and wakeboarding. Marinas offer ski boat and high performance pontoon rentals (great for tubing and water skiing). The lake is rapidly emerging as a prime destination for wakeboarding in the central United States, featuring competitions and a growing population of devoted fans.

Engineers also put great thought into road crossings and wayfaring signage – crossings are well marked or routed over, under or around roads where possible. Drivers here are used to bicyclists and give them plenty of space. And there are many facilities nearby, from bike shops to gas stations and convenience stores for those unforeseen circumstances.

CRYSTAL BRIDGES MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville opened in 2011 with a mission to celebrate the American spirit in a setting that unites the power of art with the beauty of nature.

To preserve a historical object and enhance the Museum’s architectural offerings, Crystal Bridges acquired and transported a rare Frank Lloyd Wright house from New Jersey to Arkansas.

The Museum’s grounds feature several nature trails, which connect with Bentonville’s downtown area via the city’s paved Crystal Bridges Trail.

Kenny Rogers, Jim Nabors, Barbara Mandrel, and Bo Derek were a few of the stars that purchased these unique pieces. One stove was even featured on the television game show, The Price is Right. Starting in the 1970's, House of Webster placed a strong emphasis on building its gift business. Pancake and biscuit mix, ham, bacon, smoked meat, and candies were added to develop some of the best tasting gifts ever imagined. Ceramics, fresh fruit, kitchen items and more rounded out an
amazing variety of gift options. As they headed into the 1990's and 2000's, House of Webster established itself as a national player in the wholesale jams and jellies market. Selling mason-style jars in specialty grocery stores, farm stores, gift shops, amusement parks, hardware stores, museums and restaurants.

TITANIC MUSEUM ATTRACTION Located in nearby Branson, Missouri this museum is a celebration of the ship, passengers and crew. It is said that the best way to respect and honor those who gave their lives is to simply tell their stories. The museum opens the door to the past in its one-of-a-kind way – letting “passengers” experience what it was like to walk the hallways, parlors, cabins and Grand Staircase of the Titanic while surrounded by more than 400 artifacts directly from the ship and its passengers. As visitors touch a real iceberg, walk the Grand Staircase and third class hallways, reach their hands into 28-degree water, and try to stand on
the sloping decks, they learn what it was like on the RMS Titanic by experiencing it first-hand. Each guest entering the ship receives a boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew. Feel their spirit presence in the galleries where over 400 personal and private artifacts are on display. Many are on display for the first time in the world. This collection is valued at over four and a half million dollars. It is a self-guided tour. TitanicBranson.com

The force of the water’s movement drives the blades of the wheel, which rotates a turbine that drives the mill’s machinery. This, in turn, allows the millstone to grind the grain into flour. Browse the War Eagle Mill Store for crafts, baskets, Arkansas jams and jellies and stone-ground whole grain meals and mixes. The entire first floor is dedicated to organic and Non-GMO grains, flours and mixes. Watch the miller at work, feed the geese, wander the grounds with historic home sites and enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Bean Palace Café. WarEagleMill.com

Work World Trade Center Arkansas
Business & Empl Northwest Arkansas is an outstanding place for business and employment. Led by Walmart Stores, Inc., Tyson Foods, Inc. and J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc., and many other world renowned businesses, Northwest Arkansas has experienced significant job growth the past two decades as those companies drew in their suppliers to establish nearby satellite offices. Those major companies and the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville remain centerpieces of the Northwest Arkansas economy. Northwest Arkansas has a diverse, growing workforce totaling over 250,000. Over 30,000 college students attend universities and colleges in Northwest Arkansas, giving companies a talent-rich pipeline of potential employees. These entities work with local business and industry to meet existing and new workforce needs. Respected national publications, organizations and institutions recognize Northwest Arkansas as one of the nation’s most successful, best regions as evidenced by consistent national praise over the past two decades. Here are some of the recent accolades:
ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING ECONOMIES THROUGH 2020 The Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Metropolitan Statistical Area (Northwest Arkansas MSA) is ranked No. 7 (out of 18 regions) for the most economic growth, per a research report by the U.S. Conference of Mayors in June, 2015. The region’s economy, in the report delivered to the U.S. Conference of Mayors in 2014, grew 3.8% in 2013. The region has been projected to grow at 4.2% annually between 2013 and 2020, making it one of the top metropolitan areas in the nation. The region's "gross metropolitan product" ranked No. 3 for the 2013-2020 projection period, behind Austin, TX at 4.4% and Raleigh, NC at 4.3%.
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS POPULATION REACHES 500,000 The Northwest Arkansas MSA reached a population of 500,000 in 2014. The region adds 32 new people a day since the U.S. Census 66 | THE GOO D LI FE I S FU L FI L L I N G WO R K
and has more than doubled in population since 1990. The significance of reaching this milestone is that many companies use the 500,000-population benchmark to narrow down a list of locations for relocation or expansion purposes. Northwest Arkansas is currently the nation's 106th largest MSA.
