Expect the Unexpected In Eureka Springs

Eureka Springs is a curious destination with extraordinary attractions, both within the downtown historic district and in the picturesque surrounding countryside. Experiences range from a quiet stroll through the town’s Historical Museum to venturing underground for tours of our incredible caves and caverns. Don’t miss the wildlife refuge, with its large population of big exotic cats living in a natural habitat. There are ghost tours, ziplines, even a seven-story statue of Jesus, arms spread, overlooking downtown. Regardless of which Eureka Springs attractions you choose, you’ll be entertained, educated and utterly charmed.
