Two nights... where? Bentonville or Eureka Springs?
Save

Hi. We are taking a last minute trip to Bentonville this week from St. Louis. We want to see the museum in Bentonville and then also visit Eureka Springs. Just wondering if we should spend one night in each town or stay two nights in the same place and just do a day trip to the other. If it isn't too hot, we would also like to go on a beautiful hike of about 2-4 miles.

Any thoughts would help. Thanks

I’d stay in Eureka and day trip over to Bentonville if your just wanting to visit Crystal Bridges.

My choice would be Eureka Springs, “the Stairstep City.”

Travel safely,

Having lived n Eureka, I agree with staying there and visiting Crystal Bridges.

Eureka is a different cultural experience. A very unusual, historic town with short hikes available.
