There are plenty of towns in the beautiful Arkansas Ozarks, but none have the character and charm of Eureka Springs. The grandeur of its scenic setting provides a range of outdoor fun. Other family activities and attractions come from its history and artsy side.

 

It’s easy to find things to do in a town with this kind of charisma.

 

You can feel the rush of adrenaline and wind against your face on a go-cart, zip line or mountain bike trail. Or, let your spine tingle on a ghost tour at a haunted hotel. Walking and driving ghost tours around town are also offered. A friendly, family competition of mini-golf and a swim in a hotel pool is another great way to spend the evening.

 

Find satisfaction spending time in nature on a hiking path and rejuvenation when you follow it up with a massage. You can also unwind at a winery. Fill your soul with the sound of music on various stages – indoor and out. Experience illusions and entertainment at theater shows and dramatic outdoor plays.

 

Amp up your excitement meter canoeing river rapids, skiing on the lake or catching a big bass. You can fish for a variety of species in lakes and rivers. Dry land holds plenty of exploration at a wildlife refuge and zoo. Adventure can also be found on cave tours, boats, trolleys and trains as well as downtown’s underground.

 

The curb appeal of Eureka Spring’s historic downtown comes from the well-kept Victorian architecture of homes and storefronts decorating wooded hillsides. Winding streets that don’t meet at right angles and alleys of staircases make shopping and dining in the downtown an explorer’s dream.

 

Unique boutiques fill your passion for fashion, decor, and souvenirs.  You can even buy a unique take-home memory by dressing up for an old-time photo. Art galleries are the specialties of this town that is home to more than its fair share of creatives. Also worth a visit are natural springs and spas that abound in this city founded on healing waters.

 

Lodging options fit any family dynamic, whether you like the service of a bed and breakfast inn, the history of a historic hotel, cabins in the woods, traditional motels in the middle of all the action, unique stays in treehouses or safari lodges in a wildlife refuge. Food options are wide-ranging too, from down-home southern food to upscale and farm to table. Award-winning restaurants serve savory Czech-German dishes, authentic Italian cuisine, and spicy Indian fare as well as Mediterranean, Chinese, Irish, Mexican, Cajun, and Thai.

 

Eureka Springs knows how to celebrate too. Special events are booked all year long — think kite festivals, car shows, month-long artrageous parties,  and music festivals. Parades like you’ve never seen take place for many of the main holidays. Zombies fill the streets at Halloween. Main Street is a sea of green on St. Patrick’s Day. Kings and queens rule at Mardi Gras and Christmas is pure magic.

 

People love Eureka Springs because it’s not like any other city they’ve ever visited. Come discover it for yourself.
