The Magic Pill: Eureka Springs is proven to reduce stress and fix what ails you.

This complicated and demanding world can stress you out.  Wouldn’t it be great to find a magic pill that could reduce stress and draw you closer to the ones you love?

The miraculous little town of Eureka Springs has been fixing folks for centuries and is still effective today. Here are some of the key active ingredients that begin to work as quickly as you begin planning your trip:

Anticipation: Planning is part of the fun. Eureka Springs is full of quirky shops and galleries, unique dining, and one-of-a-kind experiences.  No longer seasonal, Eureka Springs is now open Year-round so great ideas can quickly transition into stress fixes.

New to Eureka Springs on Upper Spring Street is the Mosaic Studio, a working studio and gallery offering regular group activities.

Excitement: This is abundant in Eureka but changes from season to season.  [Myth: winter isn’t as fun as the summer. Fact: the locals know that winter is one of the best times to let your hair down. You can be yourself and don’t have to fuss with traffic or the summer crowds.] Reconnect by exploring meandering trails to see a different side of Eureka. Discover hidden stairs, streets, and historic remnants as you explore town. Try a new approach to great food created by independent chefs at one of Eureka Springs restaurants.
