April 12, 2018 Deane Carmody

Conway is a city in the American state of Arkansas and the county seat of Faulkner County, located in the state's most populous Metropolitan Statistical Area, Central Arkansas. Although sometimes considered a suburb of Little Rock, Conway is unique in that the majority of its residents do not commute out of the city to work. The city also serves as a regional shopping, educational, work, healthcare, sports, and cultural hub for Faulkner County and surrounding areas. Conway's growth can be attributed to its jobs in technology and higher education with its largest employers being Acxiom, the University of Central Arkansas, Hewlett Packard, Hendrix College, Insight Enterprises, and many technology start up companies. Conway is home to three post-secondary educational institutions, earning it the nickname "The City of Colleges".

Reviewed By Melissa B - Conway, Arkansas, United States

You used to have to go to Little Rock for a decent theater experience, but since they've re-built this place, you don't have to anymore! They keep it clean, service is good, seats are comfortable and the the screens are as good as anything you've seen.

Cadron Settlement Park

Reviewed By Elaine W - Conway, Arkansas

This park has picnic sites, hiking and biking trails, a boat launch on the Arkansas River, and historic markers/informational displays. We've seen several weddings, a church service, renovation projects, and passing barges at this site. There are occasional re-enactments, but they are not widely advertised. The Water Route of the Trail of Tears included this site, where some cholera victims were laid to rest when the disease struck the encampment. It's very close to the city of Conway, making it an easy destination for a family outing.

Jennifer's Antiques

Reviewed By Mark H - Conway, Arkansas

We always enjoy visiting Jennifer's Antiques. Jennifer's has a really unique assortment of antique to mid century furniture, small finds , signs to outdoor decorator objects. The vendors that display and sell at Jennifer's are some of best within our region and keep up their areas with really good antiques. This is NOT a "flea market " or junk place. Although you might find a few trinkets most everything appeals to a little more upscale clientele in my opinion. And I like that. Jennifer is often there and can help answer questions. She knows what's in stock, has a lot of knowledge about what's offered. And to help,she keeps a list of what customers are looking for and even a list of what people in the area that don't display there have for sale. Great place. Check it out when you're in Conway.

Pickles Gap Village

Reviewed By artswim1 - Conway, Arkansas

I had looked Conway up on Trip Advisor to decide what to do. I live in Conway and have been to Pickles Gap before. I had great fudge and this Oreo snowball...both wonderful. All of the staff was more than nice. I shopped at the antique and gift part...something Worm. The lady there was very nice! In addition, I found are ally cute apron. The store has lots of homemade items in addition to antiques. They have lunch on Saturdays and Sunday's..soon to include Thursday and Friday. They serve barbecue. The setting is very quaint and kept up well. The have chicken and goats. You can buy food to feed the animals and let your children feed the livestock. It is a nice little side trip. It would be good to go, feed some animals, shop, then have lunch on the weekend. Quasi The!

Reviewed By Toran I - Conway, Arkansas

Hogwild is a welcome addition to Conway and has become an established business. Families are so often looking for things to do, and Hogwild is reliable, whether it's a sunny day or a rainy one. Located in a small shopping center with lots of parking, it is a popular place for children's birthdays parties. A separate room is provided. You bring your own cake, but you can order their pizza, if you like. You should know that Hogwild is noisy...take a cue from the name. It is filled with arcade games and a black light room, as well as riding vehicles. My favorite place is actually in the back, where there are climbing and sliding areas. One distraction to me is the ticket system. Some children get so fixated on putting tokens in machines that it can be frustrating to earn "enough". That aside, it is truly mostly a "Family Fun Center."
