Bentonville is Southern Living's No. 21 city in the South, along with larger metros like Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; and Dallas.

What they're saying: "Folks come for the art and outdoor pursuits, including world-class mountain biking," the magazine writes. "Along the way, they discover Bentonville's growing food scene and vibrant community of small businesses, and eventually they end up falling in love with the town altogether."

Our thought bubble: Yep. We like it here.

How it works: The rankings are determined by an online survey that had more than 20,000 respondents, according to Southern Living.

Zoom out: Little Rock was the only other Arkansas city on the list, coming in at No. 25.
