Fayettevile ranks fourth by Forbes

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The home of the Razorbacks made another national "Best Places" list this week as Forbes named Fayetteville to its 2009 Best Places for Business and Careers top 25.

Fayetteville ranked fourth on the list of large metro areas — ahead of Seattle, Atlanta and Nashville. The state of Arkansas fared well on the ranking with both of its major metropolitan areas in the top 25 as Little Rock came in at 22nd. Arkansas was the only state in the Southeastern Conference with two cities on the large metro list’s top 25.

The Forbes’ pick comes on the heels of a series of other high rankings for Fayetteville, including Forbes’ own top 10 college sports towns.
