Eureka Springs has a reputation for being friendly and welcoming to everyone. You may not know that Eureka Springs loves your four-legged friends too! Here are some of the things that prove Eureka Springs a pet friendly town.
Pet friendly places to stay. Places like the Crescent Hotel welcome four legged guests. In fact, they have their own residential cats. When you make your reservation, be sure and tell the hotel staff that you would like to bring your dog. Some size restrictions may apply but the hotel really loves dogs.
Pet friendly downtown. It is fun to walk the streets of downtown Eureka Springs. Great food, live music, people watching, and shopping are the main attractions. Basin Spring Park is a great place to socialize, for dogs too. Many shop owners put out water bowls for visiting doggies and one shop is dedicated to outfitting your canine in style. Blackies Backyard is located next to the Basin Park Hotel.
Dining with your doggie…
Several pubs and Eureka Springs restaurants are doggie-friendly. Enjoy breakfast or lunch at Oscars Cafe where many locals and their dogs dine seated on the front porch. People watch over a cup of Joe or an Arkansas beer at Brews where dogs are welcome on the patio. For the royal treatment visit Stonehouse. The wine selection is top notch and the cheese plates are like a culinary adventure around the world. Well behaved dogs get their own personal bowl of water and the waitstaff have doggie treats in their pockets.
Pawesome parks. Many state parks do not allow dogs on their trails. No need to worry about that in Eureka Springs. Home to hundreds of area trails, a leashed pet is welcome to discover the beauty of the Ozark Mountains right alongside you. Don’t miss the Eureka Springs Bark Park at Harmon Park near Dairy Hollow.
