No town in Arkansas is more enchanting than Eureka Springs in the fall. Nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, historic hotels, talented artists, and fine cuisines capture the hearts of locals and visitors alike.
Over the years, Eureka Springs was nicknamed “the town built in a hill,” “the town that climbs a mountain,” or “America’s Little Switzerland.” All of this references the unique landscape of the historic downtown area stacked on the side of a mountain. Eureka Springs makes the perfect fall destination as a town where red maples explode among downtown alleys and expansive sweeping views take your breath on arrival.
