Bentonville

Bentonville
Primarily known as the home of Walmart’s corporate headquarters, Bentonville embodies small-town America.
Step off the beaten path and head to Devil's Den State Park and Pea Ridge National Military Park. Appreciate the collections at The Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens and 21c Museum. When in Bentonville, make a side trip to see Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari in Gentry, approximately Gentry away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel, walk around Bentonville Town Square, take an in-depth tour of The Walmart Museum, and explore the world behind art at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
