Experience Fayetteville on Monday unveiled the 2019 Fayetteville Visitor’s Guide, which is now available at the Visitors Center on the square as well as at local hotels and restaurants and state welcome centers.
The guide can also be downloaded and viewed at experiencefayetteville.com, or by requesting a mailed copy.
The 2019 edition includes 136 pages of information for visitors and locals, including highlights of some of Fayetteville’s most popular attractions and events. The city’s new bike share program, the Fayetteville Roots Festival and new breweries that were recently added to the Fayetteville Ale Trail. As always, the guide includes profiles and information about local businesses and artists.
Featured this year are Octavio Logo, a Fayetteville artist; Abhijeet and Lisa Purkayastha, founders and owners of Khana Indian Grill; Greta Allendorf, owner of Cheap Thrills; and Hunter Yurachek, athletic director for the University of Arkansas.
This year’s cover features artwork by Bicicleta Sem Freio, the Brazilian duo who participated in the Green Candy public art project throughout the downtown and Dickson Street areas.
“The Fayetteville Visitor’s Guide, along with the Experience Fayetteville website, is one of the strongest marketing tools we use,” said Molly Rawn, executive director of Experience Fayetteville. “The guide is a great way to showcase what’s unique about Fayetteville, all the local fun and flavor. We know people planning a visit will find it helpful, and hope it makes their stay even more memorable.”
Rawn said in 2018, traffic to the Visitor’s Guide page of experiencefayetteville.com was up 50 percent compared to 2017, and up more than 300 percent since 2014.
