Home is where the heart is, which is why most doctors recommend connecting your circulatory system to a timer before leaving on vacation. Get your blood pumping with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get two tickets for the Quapaw Quarter Association's 47th Annual Spring Tour of Historic Homes (a $40 value), on Sunday, May 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free for children younger than 5.

The Quapaw Quarter Association's building stewards preserve the historical architecture and nostalgic tales housed within neighborhood haunts. Mosey through five stately stops during the 2011 Spring Tour of Historic Homes, including two houses designed by Arkansan architect Charles Thompson. Featured in the book "Daughters of Painted Ladies," Thompson's spectacular Ragland House boasts a distinctive domed two-story tower, and his Rogers House’s towering Ionic columns offset walls of brick, wood, tile, and saltwater taffy. Stroll around the smaller Urquhart Bungalow's gilded age light fixtures and extensively landscaped front yard, or examine the intricacies of the Turner-Mann House's hand-painted borders and quarter-sawn oak floors. The tour also includes a new renovation: the Bowman House, where cypress and walnut balustrades offset inner spaces that served as a practice facility for the 1896 Olympic hide-and-seek team.

While all homes on the tour are within easy walking distance of each other, a trolley will be available to locomote visitors between each pad. Visitors revel in a festive scene along neighborhood avenues lined with tuneful musicians, food carts, and an animatronic replica of Frank Lloyd Wright. Parking is available on designated streets.
