The unicorn is a legendary animal from European folklore that resembles a white horse with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Fayetteville is the county seat of Washington County and the third-largest city in Arkansas. Same difference.

We're a little too young to remember first-hand, but back in the day, KAAY in Little Rock used to make these great game day "Beat (opponent)" posters and distribute them outside their station during the season. This shirt is in honor of both KAAY and the new meaning "Beat Texas A&M" has now that we're playing them again each year.
Much like the original Old School Fayetteville tee, this one features a logo that's rarely used anymore. We spotted this one on an older model, city-owned pickup truck recently. We like.

I bought a shirt like this at a thrift store 10 years ago and have since been offered all sorts of things for it including an old hat, a pair of stinky boots and a bowl of "the best ever" leftover cheese dip. So I finally recreated it. Keep your crap and buy this shirt.

Fayetteville isn't evil, but it's one hell of a great place to live.
The White River's 722-mile-long meandering course creates a variety of environments from the fast-flowing headwaters of the upper White to the slower-moving stretches farther down the river. Between these two extremes are a variety of smaller streams and lakes that provide excellent habitats for trout fishing. Six dams in Arkansas and two in Missouri, all constructed by the 1960s along the upper river and its tributaries, create manmade lakes and generate hydroelectric power for the region. Numerous state parks and wildlife reserves are associated with these areas.

The Buffalo River begins in the Boston Mountains and flows north and then eastward through the Ozark Mountains until it merges 150 miles later with the White River. With giant towering bluffs and countless waterfalls, the upper Buffalo is one heckuva place. In fact, in 1972, Congress designated it as America's first national river. Float it and see for yourself.

Everything you've heard about how important Clunk Records was to Fayetteville is true. I don't know what else to say.
It's a big country, but good luck finding someone with no ties to Little Rock.
Some days are better than others.
The headwaters of the Mulberry River originate in the highest and most rugged mountains of the Ozarks making it very temperamental (read: fun). The pools are long, but the rapids are big. The Mulberry offers about 40 miles of good canoeing. Depending on the water level most who set out to float can cover anywhere from 6 to 15 miles in a day.
Arkansas is awesome. Your hair is awesome. The 80s were awesome. Wear it.

Sitting right on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border, Fort Smith is the second-largest city in the state. The city first began in 1817 as a small settlement named after a nearby American military post at Belle Point, a river bluff along the Arkansas River. The post, called Fort Smith, took its name from General Thomas A. Smith, the military district’s commander. The principal purpose of the fort was to keep the peace between the Osage and Cherokee tribes that had entered the area. Although it currently houses no active units, there's still a fort in…
Biking in Arkansas is incredible. We've got numerous dirt roads and trails, miles and miles of paved paths and breath-taking scenic highway routes available nearly year-round.

If the As the capital city of Arkansas, Little Rock sits right on the south bank of the Arkansas River. According to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas, it's twelve miles southwest of the geographic center of the state. If the Arkansas State Capitol building looks familiar, that's because it's a replica of the U.S. Capitol. As in United States. Of America.

There aren't very many places left where you can find this old city logo. A version of it is still on most residential recycling bins and every once in a while, you can catch a glimpse of it on the side of an older work truck. We found our version on an ancient-looking utility box in north Fayetteville. Old school Fayetteville, represent.
We're not certain how many cities in Arkansas have their own flag, but we'd be willing to bet none have a flag that's been into outer space. That's right, thanks to the efforts of Fayetteville-born astronaut Richard Covey, the Fayetteville flag was flown aboard the United States Space Shuttle Discovery from Aug. 27 through Sept. 3, 1985. From the Certificate of Authenticity Launching from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, Discovery completed 112 orbits, traveling two and three-quarter million miles before landing at Edwards Air Force Base, California.

The 25 outside stars symbolized that Arkansas was the 25th state admitted to the Union, and finally,…
