Admission is free, courtesy of Walmart.
Incentives, and more.
Come for the production incentives, stay for dinner. The Arkansas Digital Product Motion Picture Rebate gives 20% on post production services purchased in Arkansas. That, combined with the exceptional rates and quality we offer make the decision pretty easy. Still not convinced? Maybe our town will change your mind.
Bentonville is the birthplace and current headquarters of Walmart, and the surrounding area has reaped the benefits of having a fortune one company in the backyard. Northwest Arkansas might not sound like it should be on your bucket list of places to visit, but trust us, it should be. Here are a few reasons why.
Head to Phat Tire Bike Shop in town and rent a bike for the day, then ride out to the Slaughter Pen Mountain Bike Park.

Stay at the 21c Hotel, walking distance from our facilities. The 21c line of hotels is known for its quirkiness; for example, you'll see life-size examples of the hotel mascot, a plastic penguin, everywhere, and guests are encouraged to interact with them. If you would rather stay in a home, there are AirBnB options all around us. Walk or jump on one of the rideshare scooters around downtown to get wherever you need to go.
James Beard Chefs serve some of America's finest cuisine on almost every corner of downtown. It’s hard to find a bad restaurant. If you want some recommendations, we are always happy to give them. After dinner, head to the theater or one of the local breweries for a drink.
