3. Ledger Views
Ledger Bentonville is famous for being the world’s first bikeable building. The first floor is free to the public and makes for a great place to hangout with friends, catch up on work, or enjoy a book. Outside the building are six stories of free switchbacks which you can use to bike or walk up to breath-taking views of Downtown Bentonville.

5. The Bentonville Square
We love the Bentonville Square as a gathering spot for community members and visitors alike. It’s a great place to picnic and experience the buzz of our downtown area.
Join us at the Farmers Market, hosted by Downtown Bentonville Inc., from 5 to 8 pm on Thursdays and 7:30 am to 1 pm on Saturdays. Plus, every first Friday of the month, the Square is filled with music, people, and vendors for a themed city-wide block party you don’t want to miss.
P.S. For a sweet treat on a budget, visit the Spark Ice Cream Truck!
