University of Arkansas students are out for the summer, and that means that for the most part, things are going to be a bit quieter around here over the next few months.
Restaurants will be a little less crowded, the lines at the bars will be a bit shorter, and traffic around campus will be a little less congested.
I happen to love the energy the students add to the region when they’re in town.
But I also kind of like the fact that we get a few months in the summer time to hang with the full-time residents of Northwest Arkansas. As you can see below, there’s still plenty of awesome things to do in town.
