With a population of 60,000 and just a half hour commute to Little Rock, Conway, Arkansas offers an ideal mix of small town living and big city amenities. Being home to three post-secondary institutions, Conway's nickname is "The City of Colleges." From the historic downtown district to the eclectic campus areas, and from the newer homes on the outer fringes of the city to the prestigious southeast suburbs, Conway offers a diverse mix of neighborhoods, as well as some of the most affordable real estate in the nation, as evidenced by its being named the "14th Cheapest City in the U.S." by Forbes magazine in 2011.
Downtown Conway has two main districts, East Conway and West Conway, divided along Donaghey Avenue. They are both historic districts, containing some of the oldest and most interesting architecture in the city. Here you'll find the Asa P. Robinson neighborhood, named for the city's founder, and the Hendrix Addition. Old southern mansions and high-rise apartments share these charming urban spaces, along with restaurants, shops, and galleries, all within walking distance of each other. Or you may want to cycle, as the League of American Bicyclists named Conway a "Bicycle Friendly Community" in 2011. Since 2000, Conway has invested millions of dollars in revitalizing its downtown, creating prime business and office space in addition to fine retail shops and trendy restaurants. This has earned Conway awards like being one of "40 Strongest Metro Economies" from Bloomberg Businessweek in 2012 and "14th Best City for Young Professionals" from Forbes Magazine in 2011.
