Fall Trips to the Ozarks are for Good Friends

Fall is for all things pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters, campfires, changing leaves and weekend road trips. Mid to late October marks the peak of fall foliage in Northwest Arkansas making it the perfect excuse to book a cozy cottage for the weekend and spending time at the spa, shopping and visiting craft fairs.

Before heading to Eureka Springs, make your cottage reservations. The Crescent Park offers a wide arrange of cottage accommodations ensuring the perfect fit for you and your friends.

All cottages in the Crescent Park come with access to amenities offered at the Crescent Hotel, including the shuttle to the downtown area.

With accommodations taken care of, next on your list is scheduling spa services. Take time to review the services offered at the New Moon Spa (located in the Crescent Hotel). Do you prefer facials, massages, or body treatments? New Moon Spa offers all that and more.

All that is left to do once accommodations are in place is hit the road with your friends in tow. Follow the schedule below to maximize your time and experience the rich Eureka Springs culture.


Drive down and enjoy the unique shopping experience Eureka Springs has to offer. Check out the House of Style boutique located off Spring St and pick out a new outfit. Visit Iris at the Basin Park Hotel to shop fine crafts and art. Pick up some fudge for the family at Two Dumb Dames Fudge Factory. Snap a photo at Judge Roy Bean’s Old Time Photos.


Before you head off to explore the festivals and fairs, enjoy a hearty brunch in the Crystal Ballroom. After brunch, pack into the car and enjoy the most beautiful of fall drives.

After a long day of visiting the fairs, take a break and head to the SkyBar, located atop the Crescent Hotel, order craft draft beer flights and taste the crisp flavors from two local breweries.


Start the day with relaxing spa services followed by a Sunday Brunch at Mud St. Cafe. Located down a flight of stairs, you will be welcomed into the cozy commotion and invited to a table where you can order their award-winning coffee.

Time will fly as you experience the best of Eureka Springs and will leave you excited to share your adventures with others.
