July 5th, 2020

Downtown and Underground Eureka Springs TourAre you a history buff, fan of colorful stories, or just want to know more about Eureka Springs? If so, you’ll love the entertaining and educational Downtown and Underground Eureka Springs Tour!

Eureka Springs has a colorful history, to say the least. In fact, the entire city is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Native Americans knew of the area because of the hot springs, which they felt had healing powers. European settlers, hearing the legends, came here in the mid 1800’s, forming a rural spa village around the hot springs.

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.

Flowstone is a smooth, sheet-like deposit of minerals that forms in a limestone cave, over thousands of years due to flowing water. Flowstone was once commonly referred to as “cave onyx,” and at least four states are home to one or more caves with “onyx” in their names.

Eureka Springs Mardi Gras 2020Fairytales, Fables, and Folklore are the theme for Eureka Springs Mardi Gras 2020! Eureka Gras sees a cornucopia of events, including parades, parties, masked balls, and other events on now through the last week of February.

If you think New Orleans has the American lock on Mardi Gras, think again. While N’awlins and places like Mobile, AL get most of the press, Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the country, to some degree or another. Perhaps nowhere with as much joy and enthusiasm as right here in Eureka Springs, AR.

We take Mardi Gras seriously, here in Eureka Springs, with our own Royal Court, and Krewe of Krazo (Krazo is Ozark backwards). Eureka Gras includes more than a month of activities, including two parades, numerous parties and formal balls, and lots of 2nd line bands.

Eureka Springs Christmas Parade of Lights & More

November 8th, 2019

Eureka Springs Christmas Parade of Lights 2019Believe it or not the holidays are almost upon us! Thanksgiving is already less than a month away with Eureka Springs Christmas Parade of Lights right behind. Read on to learn more about how we celebrate the holiday season in our little corner of the Ozarks!

The fun never stops in Eureka Springs, spring or fall, night or day. This is particularly true during the holiday season. Every week, from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve, features at least one – if not many – holiday dinner, tour, concert, or other event to attend. The whole town gets into the spirit with festive lights, creative decorations, and lots of holiday sales.

This town loves parades and one the biggest of the year is the annual Eureka Springs Christmas Parade of Lights. A big reason for this particular parade’s popularity resides in the fact that it is held at night.

Why a night parade?

Why, the better to see the thousands of lights that make up the floats, bespeckle the walkers, and suffuse the bands in their warming glow. This annual parade truly is a unique and magical spectacle that must be seen to be believed. It’s not all our Eureka Springs holiday has in store for you, though!
