Eureka Springs, Arkansas: Victorian Enclave in Ozark Mountains
The streets of Eureka Springs Historic District curve with the rolling hills of the Ozarks. With this infrastructure, there are some funky buildings; at some Victorian hotels, you can enter at ground level on two or even three separate stories.
North Main Street stretches downhill toward artists’ colonies and galleries, many of which feature ceramics and jewelry. Eureka Springs hosts a number of regular cultural festivals, including gallery strolls and jazz weekends. To the northwest, you can see the seven-story Christ of the Ozarks statue, which stands out as a monumental white silhouette against surrounding peaks.
Travel deeper into the Ozark Mountains themselves at Onyx Cave, a part of the Mammoth Cave system that glitters with fantastical formations. The Thorncrown Chapel is an unusual house of worship; the tall, narrow structure tucked into the woods is made almost entirely of glass and wooden beams.
