Winter Things To Do In Eureka Springs

Couples often go on vacation to discover new things about a destination.  From April through November, they might visit Eureka Springs for the emerald green, forested Ozark hills of spring and summer or those same hills ablaze with fiery color in fall; playing on two area lakes or three magnificent rivers; or for some fun at man-made attractions unique to this village which has been recognized as one of America’s Distinctive Destinations.  But when winter comes, most couples escape to this extraordinary destination primarily for one three-letter word, spa.

Savvy winter travelers find that vacationing in Eureka Springs during these months offers them very attractive prices and packages.  Packages that not only include lodging but such mondo pampering services for individuals and couples as hot stone massages, duet massages, facials, and full body wraps that warm the body, mind and spirit.  Many add salon treatments to the regimen in order that their New Year’s “new look” resolution can become a reality.

Many of the more than the dozen or so professionally-operated spa facilities in Eureka Springs also offer such unique services as aromatherapy, body scrubs, facials, manicures, pedicures, self-heating mud treatments, plus the most popular Swedish and deep-tissue massages.  A complete list of local spas and services can be found at eurekaspringsspa.com.

January might be a little chilly outside, but it is not too cold for the First Annual Ozark Mountain Music Festival to be held INDOORS at the Basin Park Hotel on the last weekend of January.

Touted as Eureka Springs’ next great festival, the Ozark Mountain Music Festival will focus around Bluegrass/Indie Folk with a festival lineup that includes multiple stages and lively music all day long, just indoors. Jack Moyer, Manager of the Basin Park since 1996 commented,  “The Basin Park Hotel has always been at the edge of all great music start ups from the Eureka Springs Blues Festival, New Years Eve with Jimmy Thackery,  Eureka Springs Mardi Gras, The Cate Brothers,  Chris Duarte or when the “the Band” reunited to play a ten-year reunion show in the Barefoot Ballroom.  We are excited to host this ‘next great thing’ with the start of the Ozark Mountain Music Festival to which we expect will be an annual event for many years to come.”  Moyer went on to say a key to establishing the event will be both in providing great music on multiple stages,  using regional talent whose genre is mixed with Bluegrass, Rock and Folk and inventing a path where the festival style atmosphere makes the Basin Park Hotel abuzz with activity while attendees enjoy all access passes, overnight at the hotel and a have an atmosphere that encourages eating, drinking and dancing in one central location, an indoor festival grounds per se.

The Ozark Mountain Music Festival will begin Friday, January 24th at 6PM and will continue with at least 11 acts until Sunday’s Bloody Mary Morning Show.  Passes will be affordable and will feature regional favorites HonkySuckle, 3Penny Acre, National Park Radio,  and SxRex as well as other acts contacted and to be announced soon.
