Looking for a place for a weekend adventure? Like hiking, fishing, and ghost stories?
Go to Eureka Springs, Arkansas!
Eureka Springs is quirky town nestled in the Ozark mountains. It grew almost over night as its springs were said to have healing powers. The winding chaotic streets are a testament to how quickly the town grew in the late eighteen hundreds. The Victorian homes and buildings are a sight to see! The town also features quaint stores and restaurants. It is an awesome place to visit.
You could stay at many area hotels. The Crescent and the Basin are said to be haunted. There are lots of cabins and B&Bs are very popular.
Other thing to do would include:
Palace Bath House Railroad Diner, Actual Train up and back for dinner or lunch. Ghost Tour at the Crescent Hotel (quite a history story!) Thorncrown Chapel All glass chapel in the woods, AMAZING! (you can get married there!) Onyx Cave (for all you Spelunkers out there!) Passion Play Outdoor play about the story of Jesus (since 1968) Winery Ozark Mountain hiking and fishing.
Just a beautiful place in America!
Enjoy the Journey!
