THE FULLEST Guide to Northwest Arkansas

Although some may not recognize the city of Bentonville by name, this Northwest pocket of Arkansas offers much more than one may assume! Tara Loop, CEO of Kelly Green, a female founded startup in Bentonville, plays tour guide for THE FULLEST. She oversees Bentonville’s first healthy food concept, Sunny’s, and hosts mindful events at SunnyDays. She is on a mission to bring mindfulness, support, and well-being to the community.

For those visiting or planning a trip soon, be sure to jot down some notes as Tara shares her beloved places to stay, eat, shop, and visit.


21c Museum Hotel Bentonville

Located on the northeast corner of the Bentonville town square and a short walk to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville is a boutique hotel, contemporary art museum, cultural center, and home to The Hive restaurant.


The Barn Airbnb

For those looking for an Airbnb stay, this 125-year-old barn, recently transformed into a modern living space, is for you! It’s steps away from world-class mountain biking trails and close to downtown. You will fall in love with its Southern charm and never want to leave!


These newly built, modern townhomes are a great option for those seeking access to downtown and close proximity to Crystal Bridges.



This beautifully curated organic and local spot offers an array of salads, sandwiches, smoothies, and sips! Sunny’s food is always made in-house from scratch (with love). There are never any added sugars, preservatives, or questionable ingredients — they even make their own nut milks. They offer gluten and vegan-friendly options!


Olly Makes Bakery

This wholesome bakery is filled with organic and gluten-free treats. It’s the perfect stop after your Saturday Farmer’s Market run!

Prairie Woods Farm

This is a must-stop at the Farmer’s Market! There are no organic certifications in the state of Arkansas, so it can be difficult to find organic farmers. However, Prairie Woods Farms goes above and beyond — they grow organic produce year-round, and you can always trust that their goods are pesticide & GMO-free!


Red Barn Agrihood

Another great farm stand growing produce with the land and people in mind!
