Was not happy living here 1 rating By Anonymous ( Oct 19, 2020) We lived in Eureka Springs for 22 months and the happiest day while we lived there was the day we were pulling out of the driveway with our U-Haul filled with our belongings.
It is true about folks not accepting newcomers very well, we experienced that on a daily basis, from neig
...Read More hbors to shop merchants. There is only one run down small grocery store that looked as if should have been torn down. Or you could drive 1 hour to Bentonville to shop for decent groceries.
There are Victorian homes but most are in great need of repair. Fortunately my husband is a great handy man and i love to paint and did repair work also on the 125 year old house that had been very neglected, for decades.
Our neighbor across the street would walk past us and have a bucket filled with some of his home grown tomatoes and vegetables and not once offered to us, even though my husband on more than once occasion helped him make home repairs (for free). I might be in the yard and he walked right past me. So, it was with all of our neighbors behavior.
The doctor i visited almost killed me by putting me on the wrong medication and did not take my calls at his office when i called frantic the next day. Causing me to drive a long distance to find a doctor to help me out.
There are nice shops to visit (the best hat store you will ever see) with pretty things and nice restaurants to eat at and some nice Bed and Breakfast, is why i gave 4 stars. For a visit, the town is not that bad. I just wish that we had only stayed for a weekend and not a day longer!
It was a hot day on moving day and not one neighbor stopped by to say we would be missed (even though we had helped each one with a chore or two). They stayed in their houses and stared out the window as we packed and left. Read Less
One of my favorite small towns in America 5 rating By lessismore ( Mar 31, 2018) 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 e ...Read More ach year so the crime rate should actually be an A if you divide the data against 1 million people vs. 2,000. Read Less
A hidden Gem 5 rating By rjaidie ( Oct 27, 2015) 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 persona ...Read More l 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. Read Less
