Instagram Travel Thursday: #RogersGetaway

In August 2013, I was invited to attend a wonderful Rogers Getaway weekend. My trip to Rogers, Arkansas, was paid for by the Rogers CVB, but all opinions and recommendations are my own.

Last month, I headed to northwest Arkansas to spend a weekend in Rogers, and it was such a fun trip! I was overwhelmed with pleasant surprises – our weekend was so well planned and and hosted that we saw many sides of the city in a short amount of time. There was so much I didn’t know about Rogers, and I can’t wait to tell you more about the places we visited.

Looking back at my instagram pics from the weekend reminded me variety of the area: we started Friday evening with fine art photography, fresh latin cuisine, and a cozy little nightcap.

Saturday we were off and running to the shops, featuring everything from fur to sequins, as you can see…

Downtown Rogers has a lovely historic district, where among other things, childhood dreams can come true.You’ll shoot your eye out!

Rogers also has a beautiful lake, yummy local handcrafted food & drink, and a quaint community theater. Some grown up dreams can come true here as well… IGTravelThursday, Rogers, Arkansas, Instagram, travel, travel blogging (6) :: pictured :: Jensen Boatworks on Beaver Lake, Heirloom Food & Gifts, War Eagle Mill, Rogers Little Theater.

By Sunday I was so grateful for some time at a spa. And also, back in my lovely, comfy, whole-thing-to-myself hotel bed.

I hope this has piqued your interest – especially with fall breaks and football weekends ahead! Like I said, I can’t wait to tell you more about this town. Look for more posts soon (especially since I just might have brought something back for you…!)

  5. The food and drinks looked fantastic (do I spy a lovely mojito there?) and the whole place seems to have a very nice vintage feel!

  6. Beautiful images, I’d be on for that drink also 🙂 And a hotel bed just for myself sounds like a dream to me at the moment as I’ve been up with a baby and toddler through the night! One day… 🙂

    I was born in Rogers and lived there most of my childhood. My sisters still live in Rogers so I get to visit fairly often. It’s a fun place and I loved getting to see it through your eyes. Thanks for sharing,

    • Letitia I didn’t know that! How fun. My aunt & uncle actually lived there when I was a little girl – but it was nothing like it is now. I really enjoyed it!

  8. Sarabeth Jones,
    Arkansas!!! I’m super curious about what took you there? I’m an Arkansas girl, living in NYC! I was just there in July! You make Rogers look rather swell….that’s some Instagram magic! DJ

    • DJ, so fun to have a NEW YORK CITY Arkansan stop by! I live here, in the Little Rock area, and love to travel this beautiful state as well as all over the world. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing more of your #IGtravelthursday posts!
