Exploring Eureka Springs, Arkansas with kids allows the whole family to take a deep breath and enjoy the charms of small town life. Recently named one of Grandparents.com’s Top 10 Main Streets because of its unparalleled charm, you might want to put Eureka Springs on your list for a spot to unwind and explore the twisted streets this year.
As a mom who raised her daughter in this delightful town, I can share some of the insider tips for making the most of your vacation with the family. The top three things to remember is to slow down, enjoy the quirky things that only happen in Eureka Springs (they even have a hashtag to tag your photos and social media posts #OnlyinEureka when you see one of those unique things), and get a little out of your comfort zone and be part of the experience with your kids. When they see you loving it, they will love it too.
Smart families know that if you can make your vacation happen midweek the entire experience will be a little less crowded, although there are amazing things to see and do every day, the mid week experience makes it seem like you aren’t on vacation, but part of the locals scene. Getting to see the town in its quieter and calmer moments is often a good choice for active kids. Whatever the days are that you decide to book your vacation to Eureka Springs there is something to do for kids.
