29 Things You Need To Know About Northwest Arkansas?

KNWA/FOX 24 -- Real estate website Movoto claims they've got the top things outsiders need to know about Northwest Arkansas.

The list calls out NWA's love of the outdoors, lakes and the Razorbacks and notes the industries that have put us on the map like Tyson and Walmart - though it's worth noting they misspelled the world's largest retailer using the common (and incorrect) "Wal-Mart". Movoto also name checks the lesser knowns like Pea Ridge's Civil War battleground and Fayetteville's award winning public library.
