Johnson: Explore the Beauty of Northwest Arkansas

Johnson is a town in Washington County, Arkansas. The community is located on the Springfield Plateau, deep in the Ozark Mountains. Surrounded by valleys and natural springs, Johnson has experienced a population boom in recent years, expanding 46 percent in the past decade. In Johnson, you will have access to all of the perks that Northwest Arkansas has to offer its residents: take a trip to Beaver Lake, Northwest Arkansas’ natural 28,000-acre playground, journey south to Arkansas Wine Country and visit the largest U.S. Chardonnay vineyard outside of California at Chateau Aux Arc Vineyards and Winery, or tour Thorncrown Chapel, a breathtaking structure, which tops the American Architecture’s list of “Top 10 Designs of the 20th Century.” Beyond its recreational activities, Johnson is a great place for students, who are looking to escape the chaos of Fayetteville, a neighboring college town.
