One-of-a-kind gifts found ONLY IN EUREKA SPRINGS

eurekasprings christmaNestled deep in the Ozark Mountains, Eureka Springs is a town with lots of character.  Unlike the mega-mall,  there is no blur of chain stores with mass produced gift items that will appear under thousands of trees across the nation.  Eureka Springs takes pride in its nearly 100 one of a kind, privately owned stores stocked with items that are as much fun to look at as they are to purchase for gift giving.

The Eureka Springs shopping experience includes endless possibilities but here are a few ideas to get you started in planning for your early holiday shopping excursion:

Take a day to tour of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, have lunch and peruse their gift shop. You will notice that many Eureka Springs’ artists are featured there.

Tip: Consider using the Eureka Springs Transit routes to get from hotel to shopping and other inspiring attractions like  Thorncrown Chapel and the Christ of the Ozarks statue taking in the architecture along the historic loops in between.  You will never have to get into your car until they are ready to leave town!

If you have time, take one more day on the Arkansas Art Trail. An early morning drive will  offer glimpses of a majestic herd of elk against the backdrop of the pristine bluffs and sparkling waters of the Buffalo National River.

Your Eureka Springs Holiday Shopping Experience is guaranteed to beat pushing a wire basket with a wobbly wheel around a big box store!

Want to share your experience with some of those on your list? Many of the historic hotels and other lodging venues offer gift certificates for overnight stays; some offering generous discounts.   Spa visits, a special meal or two, and tickets to various area attractions have been packaged together by many hotels for a fabulous and easily wrapped gift.
