Holiday in Eureka Springs

Orientation

A quaint mountain town

Eureka Springs is a tiny resort town in Carroll County Arkansas with a distinctively European look dating from the Victorian period. Dotted among the wood-clad houses are an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, and restaurants. The town nestles in the stunning Ozark Mountains and is near the shores of the impressive Beaver Lake. In the town itself, houses and buildings spread along Leatherwood Creek and climb up the steep sides of the valley. Eureka Springs lies on Route 62 which meanders along a mountain ridge into town as well as being on Arkansas Highway 23 which runs to the Missouri State Line.

Eureka Springs - a snapshot frozen in time

All of Eureka Springs is on the National Register of Historic Places and is unique in the USA. It sprang up almost overnight in 1879 and within a year had over 10,000 residents attracted by the hundreds of cold springs in the area, thought to have therapeutic qualities. The boom period was short-lived and Eureka Springs was left as a collection of houses isolated in the Ozark wilderness. Today, hundreds of these Victorian homes still stand, ranging from ornate mansions to tiny one-room cottages.

Activities

A destination for country lovers

As well as the mountains, the town is near three lakes and two rivers making it the ideal base for outdoor activities. Hike in dense woods or the protected bird areas of Black Bass Lake and Lake Leatherwood, fish for bass and trout in Table Rock Lake and White River or take to the water in rafts and kayaks.

A destination for car enthusiasts

Every weekend, the town sees gatherings of cars and motorcycles of all vintages. Street artists and musicians turn these gatherings into lively events while car festivals and parades are regular occurrences in the Eureka Springs calendar.

A wedding destination

It is no surprise that with its historic and romantic architecture, Eureka Springs has become a popular wedding destination. Built in 1889, The Rosalie is one of the town's prettiest buildings and features a Steamboat Gothic design. It is now a licensed wedding venue. Once the ceremony is over, a quaint cottage or romantic cabin are perfect for honeymoons.

The town's residents have mixed feelings about the Christ of the Ozarks. This seven-story sculpture is affectionately referred to as 'our milk carton with arms'!
