Trek to quaint and quirky Eureka Springs for a romantic getaway
Getting away with your sweetheart doesn't have to be an ordeal or major expense.
- Just an hour's drive from most of NWA, quaint and quirky Eureka Springs has plenty to offer couples for a simple day trip or weekend adventure.
Sights: Check out Thorncrown Chapel or Christ of the Ozarks, but just about every building downtown is worthy of appreciation thanks to the hills and cliffs that forced innovative construction.
Snacks: Several restaurants cater to couples. Dine on salmon or lamb shank at Rogue's Manor in an old house near the top of the hills downtown.
- Grotto Wood Fired Grill and Wine Cave, built around a natural spring, offers dishes like grilled portobello and smoked duck in a unique setting. Reservations are recommended.
- If wine is your thing, visit Keels Creek Winery for locally grown and fermented vino.
Shop: From antiques to galleries featuring regional artisans, there's always something to shop for in Eureka Springs, and the inventory is ever changing. Take your significant other for a walk through downtown shops and splurge on something that brings a twinkle to their eye.
Sleep: Of course, there are dozens of hotels, motels, treehouses, cabins and more for lodging. Find the perfect place — be it historic and haunted or sweet and semi-secluded — to spend the night.
