Taking its name from famed Arkansas-born pilot Louise Thaden, Thaden Field is a full service, community-centric aviation center. The Fieldhouse Hangar features a rotating display of vintage aircraft and other exhibits tied to aviation history. A boardwalk offers access to Lake Bentonville, with fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking. Watch the planes take off and land from the comfort of Louise – a modern all-day cafe.
