The Stairstep Town
Perhaps one of the most unique features of the town of Eureka Springs are our diverse natural surroundings. The community was built on the picturesque Ozark mountainside, and the town derived its name from one of the 60+ natural springs in the area. Often referred to as the “Little Switzerland of America” and the “Stairstep Town” for its mountainous terrain, you can take advantage of a multiplicity of opportunities to take nature tours, go hiking, biking, and more!
