We are visiting Branson and we are going to take a day trip to Eureka springs which day would be better? Week day or weekend day Sunday?
It's an interesting mix of days off in Eureka Springs. Your safest travel day is Thursday. Everything is open, but it's not overly crowded. Almost everything is open on Sunday, but businesses usually take a day off somewhere between Monday and Wednesday. You wouldn't necessarily notice a few that are closed on early week days because the schedules are all offset, although, to catch everything open, come on Thursday - Saturday.
Sundays can be very quiet after about 2:00pm, that was our experience and that is what we were told by a shopkeeper. I suspect that will be the case in the fall also, during foliage season. I think a Friday/Saturday night would be better. You will like this little piece of heaven in the Ozarks; at least we do.
We where there is past Sunday and found some things open however their hours where not consistent if it is slow they will close early or if the weather isn't great they may not open at all, several closed on Monday and Tuesday. Thursday- Saturday are your best options.
