The thrill of Spring Breaking in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is enhanced by staying in Eureka’s mountaintop spa resort, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa.  Not just because it is a Historic Hotel of America, but because of the fun things to do while you are there.  This year’s experiential Spring Break Resort Activities include:
