The best way to see Eureka Springs is via the trolley or walking. Do not drive. The hills are steep and the streets are narrow. Therefore, "save some spring in your feet for Eureka Springs." There are many unique historic buildings.

The Historical Downtown has been our favorite place to visit since our first trip to Eureka back in 2015. Plenty of sights to see and new friends to meet

Quaint and historical, motels are all a bit dated, many good eating establishments, early spring is not a good time to visit since many of the attractions are not open.

We loved this place. It was quirky and eclectic but completely down to earth, not like they were trying to be anything cool, just were. Parking is easy and inexpensive in downtown lots. Give yourself a few hours to wander and enjoy a meal there.

I feel my everyday stress just melt away when I drive into the historic part of town! Strolling the streets shopping or dining in one of the multitude of delightful restaurants is my Happy Place!

We did a lot of walking up and down the streets which are very hilly. The shops are great and you can find unquie gifts. We will be back.
