If you're a fan of architecture, of places that are full of history and character, then you absolutely must go to the Crescent. A grand, almost intimidating structure, it is filled with a variety of beautifully decorated rooms; victorian in style, but not over-the-top-floral-nightmare victorian. There are gorgeous verandas on the front and back of the hotel on multiple levels offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. There is a spa on site, as well as a restaraunt that doubles as a dance hall, a bar with it's own veranda, and a history worth reading about. There are ghost stories stemming from when the hotel was briefly run as a psychiatric hospital, rooms said to be haunted. Eureka Springs is a beautiful place to go, and staying at the Crescent made it that much more special.
