Pet of the Week
Need a friend? This large, very pretty 20-month old tri-colored border collie/shepherd is "Star" (#136). She's a sweetheart who is very energetic, loves peace and quiet, and would do best if an only pet with a yard to run in. She'd love to have a real home. ...

Happy Days: Snow Village Takes Baby Boomers Down Holiday Road (11/19/14)

Typically, there is a model train chugging down the hillside and through a tunnel to the village station. Candles shine from the stained-glass windows of the white-steepled church. Tiny carolers, mouths frozen in song, cluster under street lamps. Skaters move in proscribed circles over the mirrored surface of the town pond...

What do YOU think?
What, if anything, should the CAPC do to help bring more tourism dollars to Eureka Springs?
"They should advertise more in other cities. When we [Nelson's Leather] advertised a sale the year before last in the Fayetteville, Springdale, and Rogers papers, shoppers came in droves."
"J.D. from Okie"
"They should use a college student or marketing department to help save on costs and help do market research."
"They should create an off road four-wheeler trail like the one in Hot Springs. That would get people here pretty quick."
"Sock Shop Sue"
"We are doing great so I'm unsure what else they need to do."
"We need more out-of-state advertising in magazines and newspapers."
"Good question. They could look at past successful programs and campaigns and re-implement them."
