This is an example of how disconnected a score can be to the real-life experience. Eureka Springs with its victorian architecture, rolling hills w/ trolly stations, and artist retreats is like a mini San Francisco in the Ozark mountains. Nearly a million visitors visit the town each year so the crime rate should actually be an A if you divide the data against 1 million people vs. 2,000.
This city is absolutely beautiful. It is perfect for family vacations and get-aways. I would recommend it to anyone who loves mountains, the country side, and event the beach. It is such a serene little town with friendly locals and there is always something to do. My personal favorite is downtown Eureka Springs. Downtown you will find shops you Will Not find anywhere else. Downtown there are natural rock formations along walkways, fountains and streams (yes, this is downtown), and adorable little parks right in the middle of the city. All I have to say about this city is that it is an undiscovered gem. I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't really know where they'd like to vacation, to the experts, and especially to couples as it is a place you will fall in love all over again.
