The Extraordinary Escape
Eureka is a quaint, community that arose out of the Arkansas Ozarks in the late 1800s. Buildings were constructed of native limestone, the streets were pathways for horse-drawn carriages, the people were friendly, the air was crisp and clean and the surrounding waterways were cool and azure blue. What has changed? Not that much. Eureka Springs, AR is a city that time forgot. The buildings in the historic district are still made of limestone, the streets are still narrow but now paved, people are friendlier than ever, and the air and water are still some of the cleanest in the country. I guess you could say the biggest change is what has been added to ensure an escape to Eureka is fun-filled.
