Nature's playground awaits in Eureka Springs West

Thursday, May 29, 2008
Get a bite of summer on the White River.

How do you imagine the perfect summer day? Is it slow, leisurely fishing on the White River, watching deer and squirrels scampering along the bank, or chasing down fun on a jet ski or boat, zipping through the waves on Beaver Lake? Maybe it's a family outing with swimming and snorkeling, then a picnic lunch picked up from that great restaurant just a few miles away, or a day of shopping and watching artists work, followed by a sunset horseback ride. No matter what makes your day perfect, you can find it in Eureka Springs West.

  Mother Nature shows off her handiwork in early summer, with a full palette of spring colors merging with the lush green of the Ozark hills, and irresistible beauty proves to be the best backdrop for relaxation. Take a cruise aboard the Belle of the Ozarks, a pontoon boat ride through the hidden treasures of Beaver Lake, or learn about the area's history at Blue Spring Heritage Center as the last spring flowers turn to summer's green glory. Do some antiquing at Inspiration Point, or load up the cameras and go for a hike at Lake Leatherwood City Park. As the afternoon shadows stretch into evening, enjoy an amazing Ozark sunset with your dinner, then listen to the serenade of crickets and peeper frogs from the comfort of your luxury cabin or cottage.

  Out here, every day is the perfect day; find your own corner of summer paradise in Eureka Springs West.
