1. Go cheap

Jones Center — 922 E. Emma Ave. in Springdale

  • Why it's great: This place has an indoor pool, a variety of fitness classes, a bike park, a gymnasium where you can play sports — and even an ice rink. And you can get it all for $25 a month or a bare-bones membership for only $8 a month.

Bentonville Community Center — 1101 SW Citizens Circle in Bentonville

  • Why it's great: Swim laps, take fitness classes or work out at the fitness center. The community center also offers nutritional and personal training services. Memberships are $19 a month for Bentonville residents or $25 a month for nonresidents.

Rogers Activity Center — 315 W. Olive St. in Rogers

  • Why it's great: Both youth and adult sports teams and generally kid-friendly with after-school care and summer day camps. Plus a fitness center and fitness classes. Memberships are $15 a month.

Razorback Regional Greenway — 37 miles from south Fayetteville to Bella Vista
