While most towns have just four seasons, Eureka Springs has five, and the fifth one comes right after the holidays. It's our secret season, a time when the crowds thin out but the fun doesn't. The secret season is the perfect time to book a quiet getaway, do some shopping and antiquing, explore all the hiking trails, and really discover the heart of the town. The weather might be a little chilly, but the atmosphere is warm and gracious as you meet locals in coffee shops, learn about the area's history, and see the undraped beauty of the Ozarks in winter. Our secret season isn't something we share with everyone, just our closest friends, like you. So enjoy the opportunity to relax, see a museum or two, take in some local music and find out what makes Eureka Springs such a great place to be; you might even feel the magnetic pull of those healing springs, and end up a local yourself.
