Nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the whole town of Eureka Springs is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Museum-lovers will appreciate 21c Museum and Mitchells' Folly. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pea Ridge National Military Park and Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel. Venture out of the city with trips to Hobbs State Park (in Rogers) and Cosmic Cavern (in Berryville). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Leatherwood, explore the fascinating underground world of War Eagle Cavern on Beaver Lake, walk around Basin Spring Park, and cast your line with a fishing tour.
