Eureka Springs, Arkansas
The Most Fun in Historic Downtown is
Eureka Springs, Ark.
...and that's why families, couples and groups come here!
The "early-day tourists" who came flocked here in the mid- to late-1800s knew right away that Eureka Springs was a place to which they would like to return time after time after time. Why? Because here in The Ozarks they had FUN .memorable, clean, affordable fun. Whether it was splashing in our waters or hiking our trails or finding a great place to eat or stay or other wonderful discoveries, they knew they could unwind outdoors in Eureka Springs AR.
Today's visitors still splash in our waters (adjacent Beaver Lake and Table Rock Lake; Buffalo National River, White River, and Kings River), hike our trails (both urban and throughout the Ozark National Forest), find great places to eat (Eureka Springs restaurants abound .greatest per capita of any Arkansas community), stay (historic Eureka Springs hotels that accommodate with old world charm including a Magnuson Grand property) and discoveries like shopping (one-of-a-kind stores and galleries) and an Arkansas spa or two that are uniquely located in a historic hotel.
Featured outdoor fun events include the Eureka Springs Fat Tire Festival, Eureka Springs XTERRA Eureka Springs Off-Road Triathlon and Trail Run, Wal-Mart FLW and Buddy Bass Tournaments on Beaver Lake. Meanwhile back in downtown Eureka, there are parades galore, live music and entertainment in Basin Spring Park and the all-new Downtown Underground tour.
And these days even more come for romance fun and a Eureka Springs wedding at such world-renowned sites as Thorncrown Chapel (more Arkansas weddings in Eureka than anywhere else here in The Natural State). So how do today's travelers spell FUN? Eureka Springs Arkansas .and remember the MOST FUN IS DOWNTOWN!
