What Are Some Things to Do in Eureka Springs, Arkansas?

Historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas, offers guests the chance to take a trolley through its historic downtown, tour the haunted Crescent Hotel, fly through the treetops at Ozark Mountain Ziplines, and ride horses at Bear Mountain Log Cabins. The town is located near Beaver Lake, deep in the Ozark Mountains.

Vintage Victorian homes colorfully restored to look like they did at the end of the 19th century fill this mountain town. The open-air trams at Eureka Spring Tram Tours take passengers on 90-minute rides past these homes and businesses with stops at the Crescent Hotel and the Grotto Spring.

While the tram tour visits the Crescent Hotel during the day, operators offer ghost tours after the sun goes down. Labeled "America's Most Haunted Hotel," the Crescent is home to ghosts Michael and Theodora as well as a lady in room 3500 that appears in Victorian lingerie.

Ozark Mountain Ziplines offers two-hour adventure tours through the treetops on 10 different zip lines. The lines, some of them 1,800 feet long, reach from platform to platform in the tree canopy. Some platforms are more than 200 feet in the air. The guided tours operate rain or shine.

Roughly five miles from Eureka Springs' downtown core, Bear Mountain Log Cabins offers rustic accommodations as well as horseback riding through the Ozarks. Also known as Bear Mountain Riding Stables, the outfit also offers day rides for those staying in town.
