Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Arkansas isn’t on many people’s radar when it comes to vacation destinations, but Eureka Springs is a small town that shouldn’t be missed. Nicknamed “The Little Switzerland of America” and “The Stairstep Town,” Eureka Springs is a tiny Victorian town nestled in the Ozark Mountains. While the entire city is less than seven square miles, there’s plenty to do and see, like browsing the more than 100 local shops and galleries, visiting historical buildings such as the Thorncrown Chapel, or exploring the underground onyx cave parks. After a busy day, try out one of the town’s multiple award-winning restaurants that serve everything from Indian to Czech-German to Mediterranean fare. A new study suggest mismatching your cuisine leads to a more enjoyable meal, so consider heading to the Indian restaurant for dinner and the Czech-German for dessert!
Eureka Springs was nominated by USA Today’s 10 Best as one of the Best Southern Small Towns. You can vote every day between now and April 24, 2017.
