We are camped in Eureka Springs, KOA campground. The roads here are winding, narrow and have very little or no shoulders. We were glad to get the motorhome parked.
The city has steep winding streets filled with Victorian-style cottages and manors. The old commercial section of the city has a streetscape of well-preserved Victorian buildings. The buildings are primarily constructed of local stone and lie along streets that curve around the hills and rise and fall with the topography in a five-mile long loop. Some buildings have street-level entrances on more than one floor. Eureka Springs has been selected as one of America's Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is also known as 'The Stairstep Town' because of its mountainous terrain and the winding, up-and-down paths of its streets and walkways. The streets wind around the town, and no two intersect at a 90 degree angle, they just weave around at steep grades, there are no traffic lights. It is also the the home of America's outdoor drama "The Great Passion Play". It is a very popular wedding and honeymoon destination with 216 Bed and Breakfast's, 2000 hotel rooms and cabins. The area also has several large lakes.
We drove through town several times, and walked around the shops and old buildings. We decided to take a tour to get an explanation of the many buildings and history of the area.
From here we are going to Devil's Den State Park to meet up with Diana's sister and husband who live in San Antonio. We found out a few days ago they were going to be close by. We will visit for a day and continue to head home.
