Arkansas Breweries in Eureka Springs

November 13th, 2020

enjoy craft beer at Arkansas breweriesThe craft beer movement that transformed America didn’t pass by Arkansas – not by any means. In fact, the Eureka Springs area is home to two excellent Arkansas breweries.

For beer lovers, there’s nothing more exciting than a chance to sample fresh, locally produced craft beers. Small batch and craft beer brewers provide a unique glimpse into a region via the flavors their creations impart. In that respect, visiting a craft brewery is no different than visiting a winery or a restaurant featuring seasonal, locally-sourced foods.

That’s certainly true for the Arkansas breweries here in town. Eureka Springs is currently home to two craft breweries and a number of other venues offering local, regional, and national craft beers. Guests of our Eureka Springs bed and breakfast will enjoy the variety of options available right here in town!

Explore Onyx Cave – Arkansas’ Oldest Show Cave

February 7th, 2020

Onyx Cave in Eureka Springs ArkansasArkansas is riddled with fascinating caves you can visit and tour. Did you know that Arkansas’ oldest show cave, Onyx Cave, is barely 15 minutes away from 5 Ojo, our Eureka Springs inn? It’s true!

Onyx Cave first opened to the public in 1893, just a couple of years after its discovery. The cave is filled with fascinating shapes: stalagmites, stalactites, and weird formations of flowstone. In fact, that’s where the cave got its name.
