Walking/Driving Tours

After breakfast, walk or park close to our historic Carnegie Library, where you can check your email or read the news.   Next, walk to the Palace Bath House and get a quick tour of an authentic era bath house that's still in use with its tin ceilings, large tubs and steam cabinets.  Meander to our 1916 Post Office and take a peek inside.  Next shop until you drop at Eureka’s galleries, boutiques and quaint  shops galore.   Peek into the lobby of the New Orleans Hotel then walk to the Basin Park Hotel and elevator up to the ballroom on the seventh floor for the view and to see the stained glass windows. Walk down the stairs and check out the framed historic photos on each landing.  Basin Park, the heart of our city, is where it all began and a definite "must stop".  Take a break….catch some music or a performer and then people watch from one of the colorful benches painted by  local artists. 

Catch a bite to eat at Mud Street Cafe which is located below street level.  When the streets were raised and improved, the first floors of Eureka's buildings on the downhill side found themselves buried.  Mud Street Cafe is a perfect example of this.  Next keep walking downhill towards the trolley depot and buy an all-day trolley pass, then go next door to the Cornerstone Bank and take a good look at REAL old time brass teller cages, a working pot-bellied stove, old phones, and historical collections galore.  Pick up a free bank post card then jump onto the  GREEN trolley and ride it for one complete turn, or stop at the ES&NA Railway Depot to see vintage rolling stock and a restored Victorian dining car. The RED trolley is next and if you sit first on one side then the next you can see dozens of turn-of-the-century Victorian gingerbread houses that are protected  in our little village by the National Historic Trust. For more fun, sit on the wood slat rear seat and lift your feet to slide from side to side as the trolley maneuvers the sharp turns.  The Red trolley will drop you off at the Crescent Hotel.  Check out the lobby and ask where the cat entrance, then take the elevator to the top floor observation deck for the view.  Walk down the staircase, out the back door and down the stairs to Saint Elizabeth's Chapel, the only church in the world that you enter through the bell tower.  Walk past the statues and enter the lovely chapel.  Next take one of the marked historic footpaths back down to Spring Street and check out some of Eureka’s springs. 

Drive 62 West to Thorncrown Chapel, one of the AIA's top ten "architectural treasures" of the past century.   Continue away from town to Hwy 187 (new filling station at 187/62 junction) and turn left onto the 4 mile horseshoe loop across  Beaver Dam, stop at the dam overlook,  pass the rock quarry watch for giant  concrete dinosaurs in the woods, then return to Hwy 62 and turn left.  You'll see Hwy 187 again but this time on the right side of the road where you turn and continue driving through rolling countryside and farms ...you can't get lost.  You arrive at the old Beaver Town Inn & General Store circa 1901 where you can stop for a cold drink and watch the lakeside activities.  Next cross the only single lane wooden floored suspension bridge still in use in Arkansas.   Recently used as a setting in the movie "Elizabethtown", the town folk saved it from "demolition with a mass "jump off the bridge" protest.  

Continue driving towards Eureka and select one of the award winning restaurants for dinner.   Now enjoy some good family entertainment at Ozark Mountain Hoedown or Pine Mountain Jamboree for a memorable music show.  For a more religious presentation there's The Passion Play (don't miss the statue).  There are many other musical choices where you can relax and kick back to recap your day.

Finally, a late night romantic carriage ride around the Historic Loop right back to the front door of your inn for a good night’s sleep.

Whatever you miss today can be picked up before departing the next morning.
