For those interested in history or the Civil War you will be close to Pea Ridge National Military Park.
It has a visitor center and a museum. You take a self guided driving tour and stop at different points of interest to learn about the largest Civil War battle to take place in the West.
In Eureka Springs you are close to Beaver Lake. We saw the lake and it looked great. We were too busy trying to take in all the sights in a short while to do much camping. Beaver lake is one of the things I plan to see more of when I make another trip to Arkansas.
Quigley's Castle is more like a very interesting and unique home than a castle. I was fascinated by the history of it and how it was built.
Bottle trees and stone fencing surrounded by flowers in the garden. The woman who built the house collected interesting rocks for years until she had saved enough to make a house out of.
Thorncrown Chapel is an architectural wonder deep in the woods. It is a beautiful wooden and glass chapel. When you are inside of the chapel the woods around you are peaceful and green and you feel like you are in the woods not in a building.
Peaceful place for meditation.
Heritage Village is for antique lovers. There are dozens of buildings full of authentic antique items. You walk around in a park like setting among beautiful buildings and learn about history.
There was a great lecture about antiques and collecting that we enjoyed very much.
Outdoor theatrical of Jesus the Christ's last days of mortal ministry upon the Earth, His crucifixion and resurrection. Very well presented. Unmissable.
Lake Leatherwood. Rental canoes, kayaks, paddleboats. Fishing. Cabins. Public restrooms. Seasonal store. A "1600-acre municipal park surrounding an 85-acre spring-fed lake."
There are three tower in town-but this one has the best price at $1. The others run $5-6 and the views are the same. Coin machine is on site.
This is another of the unique land formations at the Pivot Rock location. You will see this on the way to the Pivot Rock on your short hike. $3.00/adults, $.50/child.
The Great Passion Play takes you through the final days of Christ.
It's beyond words - you must experience it for yourself.
