Eureka Springs has a mysterious effect on people. No one seems to be able to explain quite why they love the place, secluded and peaceful with winding mountainside streets; the city has flair like no other. Chosen as one of America’s “Dozen Distinctive Destinations” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this Victorian village boasts the country’s only entire downtown on the National Register of Historic Places. Nestled in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas are painstakingly preserved Victorian homes that hug the slides of cliffs and hillsides. The city has block after block of one of a kind shops, boutiques, fine art galleries, craft emporiums, spas, and restaurants.
Outdoor adventures abound. The city is surrounded by 2 rivers and 3 lakes. On Table Rock Lake or Beaver Lake there is great fishing, smooth water for canoe/kayak float trips, take a guided cruise, rent a boat or jet ski, or even paddle board! The 1600-acre Lake Leatherwood City Park is crisscrossed with hiking and biking trails, and the 85-acre spring-fed lake is perfect for a day of swimming, boating or fishing. Nearby caves and caverns are perfect for exploring on a hot summer day.
This is decidedly not an ordinary town. Attractions, shopping, arts and entertainment, fine dining, sports and recreation, unique architecture, amazing history, there’s a town full of engaging residents and merchants who care for you while you are here and will always welcome you back.
