Nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the whole town of Eureka Springs is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Change things up with these side-trips from Eureka Springs: Bentonville (The Spice & Tea Exchange, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, &more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Thorncrown Chapel, pause for some photo ops at Christ of the Ozarks, see the interesting displays at Eureka Springs Historical Museum, and stroll around Basin Spring Park.

To plan Eureka Springs vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New York City to Eureka Springs is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and taxi.
