The Best Time to Visit Eureka Springs
With such incredibly natural beauty surrounding us, it probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise that the most popular time of year to visit our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast is summer. Summer in Eureka Springs is an experience that you won’t have anywhere else. Summer means a host of fun activities to do as you spend time outside in the beautiful Arkansas weather. In fact, it’s this abundance of activities that makes summer the best time of year to visit Eureka Springs.
There is a myriad of options available to you during your summer stay here in Eureka Springs, including the following:
- The Blue Spring Heritage Center is home to Blue Spring, the largest spring in northwestern Arkansas, an important piece of Eureka Springs’ history. It’s a beautiful park that offers a lesson in history, too, as this spot was once a stopover on the Trail of Tears.
- The Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway is fun way to see the scenery of the area on one trip. You can even dine in an old railway car while you are enjoying your tour.
- Opera in the Ozarks is a magnificent experience and one that we hope everyone has at least once in their lives. The concerts are held at Inspiration Point on Scenic U.S. Highway 62, overlooking the White River valley approximately 600 feet below. It’s visually stunning, and the artistry of the performers is always top-notch.
- Quigley’s Castle is the dream home of Elise Quigley (1910 – 1984), where she grew her garden of perennial flowers that contains over 400 different flowers. Today, her grandchildren maintain the property and invite visitors to enjoy the beautiful garden still there.
- Enjoy walking the streets of downtown Eureka Springs, admiring the historic Victorian architecture of the city’s buildings, and stopping in to browse the shops or enjoy a bite to eat at local restaurants along the way.
- Get out for a hike! There are so many trails in the area, but one popular nearby place to go is Lake Leatherwood City Park. It’s also a great place for mountain biking and paddling.
- Eureka Springs Tram Tours through the historic district. It’s a great way to learn the history of this charming small town.
- Soar over the beautiful scenery with Ozark Mountain Ziplines.
- Go hiking around or floating down the Buffalo National River, which is about an hour away from our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast and an incredible place to spend a summer afternoon. You could also enjoy the water in an entirely different way by taking a narrated boat tour on Beaver Lake with Belle of the Ozarks.
- On a hot day, sometimes cooling off underground is one of the best things to do in Eureka Springs! Head underground at the Onyx Cave.
