Inside of the hotel is about it. Hope there's a nice TV. :)

Unless you want to go to the University of Arkansas and babe watch.

He has no chance with any of the girls there, unless he poses as one of their brothers. :D

I never been to Rogers, Alaska (AK) but I've been to Rogers, Arkansas (AR) many times. Too bad, because I know of lots of things to do there. :)

Rogers, Alaska? or Rogers, Arkansas?

If it's Rogers, ARKANSAS (AR) then there's actually a few good places to check out.

Chances are you'll be staying in or near Scottsdale Center in Rogers. This is "hotel row" with numerous hotels and all of the traditional chain restaurants.

Famous Dave's, Applebees, Chili's, On the Border, Outback, etc. There's also a big movie theatre and shopping center there with a Borders bookstore.

If you have a car you can visit downtown Bentonville and hit the Wal-Mart museum (dont laugh, its actually kinda cool!) Right next door there's a diner with some of the best hamburgers i've ever tasted!

Then head to Rogers and go to Andy's Frozen Custard for desert!

Drive south to Springdale to go to the AQ Chicken House! AMAZING country cooking made with Tyson chicken. (Springdale is Tyson HQ).

A little further south is Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas. Plenty of bars and clubs on Dickson Street with all of the college girls you could ask for. (or so i'm told. My wife doesnt let me out)

If you'd rather stay closer to Rogers, the downtown has a nice little live dinner theater. In Nov they're showing "Footloose" (the stage adaptation) Beaver Lake is nearby if you like fishing and boating but if you're into golfing you'll want to visit the Village of Bella Vista. It is right up the road and has a number of challenging golf courses.

Have a great trip!

You going in to XNA, ASG, FAY, or ROG ???

Furloughed is a friend of mine and has some good suggestions. How long are you there ? If you are going to be around a while I have a couple buddy's that will more than likely be out on the lake if you'd like to go a long and ski...

I think you have my number, give me a call if you'd like...

I grew up in Fayetteville. Since I am a native, and went to the U of A, this is probably the one thing I can contribute to this site which would be worth a darn. If you are going anywhere in Northwest Arkansas, Fayetteville is at worst a twenty minute drive. That might not seem like it is worth it, but I trust all you corporate pilots have spent at least that amount of time on commutes from STL to jetcorp over at Spirit, PWK to downtown, or your morning commute from Southaven MS to MEM (at least I have). Fayetteville is where the action is, don't let anyone tell you different. Dickson street has several places to eat including Ozark Mountain Brewery, and Joses (also great places to get your drink on), for good nightlife, go to the Old Post Office on the square, JR's on block street, or Powerhouse seafood. The Hoffbrau is a great place for a steak, or burger with a decent atmosphere, and Cafe Santa Fe is almost right next door. Almost all of these places are within walking distance of one another, and you can have a great time at any of them. Hit me back if you need directions from the airport to the square. Although I have been in Memphis for quite a while-- my whole family still lives there, so I might be able to help.

Hoffbrau closed last I was there, but I'll second the recommendation for the Powerhouse Seafood.

There's a fantastic steak place right on Dickson St. that for the life of me I can't recall the name of... They also have a location on the west side of South Walton St. in Bentonville. If you want steak that is the place to go in NW Arkansas. I only wish I can think of the name.

O.K... I looked it up for you.. The steak place is called "Doe's Eat Place" ... Try it out.

That's too bad about the Hoffbrau, I spent my formative years there getting lit and chasing those young hotties

I didn't know there was a Doe's in Northwest Arkansas- but h25b is right to recommend it. That place started out as a hole in the wall in Greenville MS, steaks were so fantastic it got famous. In the south at least.

I though Doe's was a bust. It was highly reccomended to us but I thought the steaks were average at best and not worth the $$. Having spent a lot of time in many southern college towns, I would put Fayetteville at the bottom of my list.

Can't say I disagree with you there, most towns which host SEC universities are rather weak. If you are looking for more cosmopolitan digs with actual stuff to do, go to ATL, AUS, SFO etc, etc. Not too bad for a college town.

You must have caught a bad night, I've always had great steaks there...

As for college towns, they're right Fayetteville ranks pretty low...

Man that's real nice of you...I havent been on a ski since I lived in NH. We land in ROG at 4pm and have to take off in the morning so we are pretty limited time wise.

I am going to check out Does and Powerhouse Seafood.

Thanks for the tips everyone!

I lived in NWA for 4 years. If you are only there overnight, and are interested in some good food, I would recommend The Marketplace Grille in Springdale. About 20 minutes from Rogers. I forget the name of the street, but its just southeast of the Holiday Inn in Springdale. When my daughter would come and visit us in Arkansas from California, one of the few local attractions that impressed her was the Marketplace Grille. Hope you enjoy!!

Just found out that I am there next week too.

Where do we stay?
Tried looking for the usually..Marriott/Hilton and no luck anywhere near XNA.
Our scheduler said that everyone recomends the Clarion, but I can't believe that this is the best to be had.

Thanks for the help!!!

There's an Embassy Suites in Rogers which would be as close as anything. XNA is out in the middle of nowhere... Make sure you get a rental car, you'll need it ... Embassy is probably the nicest place but if you stay there it is not close to many restaurants. I would probably go for one of the hotels in the Scottsdale Center in Rogers... A long row of eateries/shopping is right there within walking distance.

I think there's a Candlewood Suites there, or any of them in that center are all pretty much brand new and nice...
