BENTONVILLE (KFSM) – Bentonville was ranked one of the best cities in the nation for families, according to a new report from Livability.
The Livability report ranked Bentonville as the eighth best city for families.
“During the last 15 years, young families have discovered Bentonville’s appeal and helped grow the city’s population by more than 79 percent since 2000,” the report states. “What makes Bentonville one of the Best Cities for Families are the city’s great schools, surrounding natural attractions, strong support systems and small-town values.”
The number one ranked town was Overland Park, Kan.
To get its rankings, Livability looked at factors like local schools, plentiful parks and libraries, cost of living, crime rates and more.
