Eureka Springs, Arkansas
May, 2014

The May Festival of Arts is in full swing. The entire month of May is devoted to art and artists in Eureka Springs and why not? Eureka has more resident artists than any other town in the region. Art can be found nearly everywhere you look, if you slow down and enjoy all we have to offer. You can even learn new art skills at the Eureka Springs School of the Arts. Don’t just be a by-stander. Explore your creative side.

As always, there are plenty of things to do in Eureka Springs – this month there will be group concerts, gallery strolls, arts and craft shows, Camaro and Mustang car shows (not at the same time, ha), Music Shows, The Great Passion Play, endless sight-seeing, hiking, biking and all types of outdoor activities and much, much more. And don’t forget the great restaurants and clubs. All in such a quaint Victorian setting.

Make your reservation to Escape to our Ozarks Bed and Breakfast today!

P.S. We still have a couple of Saturday-Sunday vacancies for MEMORIAL DAY Weekend.
