The beautiful Ozarks

An August 2002 trip to Eureka Springs by Trinket

Quote: This was a short visit to the Eureka Springs area of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas on our way home from Austin, TX.

Very comfortable motel. Room was spacious and well-appointed. Staff was well-trained and courteous. The motel is located on a side street just off the main street. It is within a short distance of most major attractions.

There are many great places to dine in Eureka Springs. Here are a couple that we enjoyed:

The Ozark Village Restaurant is located on the corner of Main Street and serves an excellent breakfast at reasonable prices. A great buffet is available on weekends. Price was $5.00/person.

Mrs. Yoder's, located on Main Street near the entrance to the Passion Play, serves a wonderful buffet with all the trimmings for $8.95/person.

While in the Eureka Springs area, do not miss the Passion Play. It is one of the most amazing productions I have ever seen. It portrays Jerusalem during the days before Christ's crucifixion. It is put on at dusk so that different areas of the city can be lit up as the drama progresses. It is located on top of the mountain and there are several other points of interest to view while you are there, such as a Holy Land exhibit and the very lovely statue called "Christ of the Ozarks" which sits on the mountain and towers over the city.
