Thank goodness the twentieth Century forgot all about Eureka Springs. This former spa town, resting deep within the Ozark wilderness, is now part of the US National Register of Historic Places. Authentic Victorian architecture dominates much of the village landscape. In the city center, you will be met by a host of art galleries, quality restaurants, and boutique shops; all found within well-preserved 19th Century buildings. Eureka Springs is also a musically entertaining town to boot, with annual festivals and professionally-performed nightly shows on offer.

Where to stay
Eureka Springs is not suited to business travelers - most visitors to the township are couples looking for a romantic, mountain escape, or families searching for a unique yet entertaining holiday. Sightseeing tourists and families should opt to find accommodation in the City Center. They are close to restaurants, shops, and art galleries, as well as the main tourist landmarks. You’ll find great service and comfort at the inexpensive Main Street Inn.
Getting close to nature is a popular endeavor outside the city center. Tourists can look towards the Van Buren Highway for rural retreats. You’re only a few minutes from Beaver Lake when staying to the west, or close to nature-filled hiking trails to the east of downtown Eureka Springs. Try the Rodeway Inn Swiss Holiday Resort for peaceful ambiance, in the eastern outskirts of town.
