The Talk about Bella Vista

I really like Bella Vista!

I’ve lived here for 22 years and really like the scenery…wooded hills and valleys. Plenty of conveniences…grocery stores, hardware store, drug stores, fitness centers, medical facilities, lots of lakes and golf courses, a terrific historical museum, informative weekly newspaper and more. So many organizations and activities, you can’t be bored here!

Ideal Living Is Alive and Well in Bella Vista Arkansas

Nestled in the foothills of the Ozarks, Bella Vista is a wonderful little city, full of terrific people, lakes, golf courses and surrounded by Nature and yet it’s very affordable to live here! We’ve been so fortunate to have been living here for the last 14 years and, though I could fill this page with all the things that are great about Bella Vista, but I better not. You might want to move here and I’d rather keep this little gem exactly as it is. Is that selfish of me do you think? Well, regardless, forget you read any of this!

Beauty of Nature

Bella Vista Arkansas is a beautiful place to live. The lakes, trails, golf courses and swimming and rec centers make it feel like you are on vacation at a resort everyday. There is always something interesting to do here, whether you want to socialize with friends, hike, kayak or enjoy concerts and art. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Its easy to make new friends here because most people have moved here to retire, or for a new job. With over 30 churches to choose from, spiritual needs can be met for all faiths. There are many clubs and social activities in the community to become involved. The beauty of nature is everywhere around with every home nestled in the trees, looking out over a lake or golfcourse, or high above the tree tops. Four seasons have something new for nature lovers, with many beautiful flowering trees and shrubs and fall foliage.

Great place to live!

Bella Vista is a great place to live. Between the City government and the POA, the area is well maintained. The amenities, such as the golf courses, the tennis facilities and lakes, are well maintained and controlled. For retired age people, there are always a lot of activities happening and for young families, the area is a safe place to raise children. The addition of hiking and biking trails has brought a lot of attention to the area and high approvals from several mountain biking magazines. Cost of living is relatively low versus the rest of the country and the natural beauty surrounding Bella Vista is hard to beat. I have lived in the area for over 35 years and have never wanted to move elsewhere.
