We drove in late last night making it unfortanate because we were not able to see the views we knew were waiting for us. Eureka Springs is in the heart of the Ozark Mountains and we were inticipating some excellent scenary. Of course visiting in February is the off season which was great, that leaves out messing with all the other tourists around. However, that also leaves out a lot of activities that don't open up until March. But we still had a great time.
Historic downtown is where we stayed and what I would recomend. The buildings are packed tightly together, and staggered up the mountain. From the Bed and Breakfast we could walk all over town and did not have to drive anywhere. A variety of shops that served just about all of our interests.
Outside of town we went exploring to see where they show "The Passion Play" Will definately need to return when the tourist season begins so we can see the play. They have the area designed like ancient Jeruselem to help paint a better picture if you can't make it to the Israel today. In the same area is the "Christ of the Ozarks" and a segment of the actual Berlin Wall. As a history nerd this was very cool to be able to stand next to.
The end of the weekend, as always came way too soon, but gave us another corner of Arkansas that we can share.
