Do all your holiday shopping in historic, downtown Eureka Springs.

Feeling spontaneous? Why not plan a Last Minute Getaway to our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast this weekend?

Eureka Springs is a great place for holiday shopping. The historic downtown area is picturesque, and the winding streets are lined with many art galleries and eclectic shops. There may well be better places to shop, but we can’t think of any that are more interesting. Check out The Jewelry Show for unique jewelry, and Cottage Caboodle for all sorts of fabulous home accessories. Zark’s Fine Design Gallery features the largest American blown glass collection in the Midwest, along with jewelry and pottery. Iris at the Basin Park offers art, jewelry, prints, and a fabulous selection of local music. There is a good chance you’ll find items in Eureka Springs that you won’t find elsewhere.

When you’re ready to rest your feet and enjoy some refreshment, try Casa Colina, Local Flavor Cafe, or DeVito’s, three favorite Eureka Springs restaurants among locals. Or head back to our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast and dip your hand in the cookie jar. We keep the jars full and the cookies fresh.

If you enjoy sweets, consider participating in the Sweet Treats Tour on December 10, 2011. Nine Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfasts, including our own Arsenic and Old Lace, dress in holiday best and fill our tables with, well, sweet treats. Participants nibble their way from one inn to the next, picking up holiday decorating ideas and holiday recipes along the way. It’s great fun, and a superb way to get into the holiday spirit.

Please see the Sweet Treats Tour for more details about visiting historic inns filled with holiday decorations and sweet treats.
