If you enjoy watching movie trailers (i.e. coming attractions), take a sneak peek at Eureka Springs’ fall colors on the Internet. The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, that sits atop the Arkansas Ozarks on 15 acres, has just installed a webcam allowing views of the increasing fall colors in the hills and hollows that surround this Historic Hotel of America.
For this sneak peek at the changing colors, go to eurekaspringsfallfoliage.com. The views offered are refreshed every 15 daylight minutes. The view shows the huge hardwood trees that as one looks across the Ozark valley to Eureka’s East Mountain and over the top of the historic Saint Elizabeth’s Catholic Church. The source of this bird’s-eye view comes from the open-air balcony of the Crescent’s SkyBar Gourmet Pizza located on the hotel’s top floor.
“Autumn in the Arkansas Ozarks takes on a brilliance that acts like a tractor beam to area citizens who want to gaze upon this annual Technicolor spectacle,” said hotel Director of Communications Bill Ott. “Eureka Springs is a traditional top five destination according to TripAdvisor for taking in the panoramic colors of autumn. Add to that a web of hiking and mountain biking trails that connect to our hotel, it is no wonder why we are already welcoming throngs of elated leaf lookers to the Crescent for a blockbuster fall mini-vacation.
“By the way, state fall color prognosticators say this year’s peak of coloration will be during the first week of November.”
