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.
