Eureka Springs is Victorian splendor at its best. Numerous
restored homes cling to the Ozark mountainsides in a town where no two
streets intersect at right angles. Historic Spring Street offers excellent
shopping, dining and sightseeing opportunities. With popular country music
shows, a major botanical garden, a variety of museums, a steam-operated
train with dining car, Christ of the Ozarks statue, and the Great Passion
Play...thereâ€ôs something for every taste in this vacation
mecca. The town offers a wide variety of accommodations, ranging from historic
hotels and restored Victorian homes to cabins and cottages, with an ample
selection of prices, styles, and amenities.
Arkansas has more than 9,000 miles of streams, and a good deal
of this mileage is perfect for floating - be it by canoe, johnboat, raft
or kayak. The variety of Arkansas river rafting adventures is remarkable,
ranging from matchless trout fishing trips and rugged whitewater rafting
to peaceful float trips ideal for first timers. Take a canoeing vacation
in Arkansas, where the streams are, in a word, inviting.
Two of the best culinary destinations in the state offering
very different experiences are the Ozark
Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, providing a pioneer perspective
on gardening and cooking with herbs, and Winthrop
Rockefeller Institute near Morrilton, where you can live like a Rockefeller.
