For our 6th anniversary, we decided to do a staycation at 21c. Since we’re going to Italy very soon, we didn’t want to travel far or spend too much. We’ve also talked about staying at 21c since it opened, so we decided to go for it. And I am SO glad we did. It was exactly what we needed for a little one-night getaway. Luckily, we also got invited to the special opening of the new Chihuly exhibit at Crystal Bridges and it was absolutely incredible. (Thank you, Denise!)

Mom and I got up to the cold, snowy morning to go explore the lastest Bentonville has added to the square – 21c Museum Hotel. 21c is a luxury hotel with contemporary art and there are only 3 in the country – Louisville, Cinncinati and Bentonville. It has been incredible for me to see how Bentonville has changed over the last 20 years. With the introduction of Crystal Bridges and now 21c, we’re quickly becoming a tourist destination for more reasons than the Walton 5 & 10. If you’re in the area, you must go to 21c whether just for a drink and art browsing or for dinner at the restaurant The Hive.
Enjoy a sneak peek at some of the distinct details of 21c.
Happy Saturday! xo xo
