Autumn is magical in Eureka Springs West

Friday, November 2, 2007
The White River, west of Eureka Springs, is the perfect place to go with the flow of seasonal change.

One blessing of the Ozarks is the region's four distinct seasons, and autumn may be the most wondrous in Eureka Springs West. It's a time to go outdoors and experience life in a new way, from hiking in the cool morning air to finding that perfect fishing hole for a few hours of blissful quiet. From fly fishing on the White River to exploring the trails around Lake Leatherwood, remember to bring your camera to capture the beauty of falling leaves along with the graceful form of a doe drinking from a stream, or an eagle soaring high above the valley. Head down to Blue Spring Heritage Center for a historical outing, or hop on for a horseback ride and see the natural beauty of the Ozarks that keeps people coming back, year after year.

  When November's chill bites a little too hard, head indoors for some antique shopping, or visit an artist's studio and find that perfect gift for the loved one who has everything. After you've worked up an appetite, take a break for lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants right here in Eureka Springs West; no need to drive for miles when you get the munchies. As the day winds down, slip into a warm Jacuzzi bath, watch the light flicker from the fireplace, and give in to the magic of Eureka Springs West.
