Kids Love Downtown

Fun things for kids in Eureka Springs

Family fun happens day and night in downtown Eureka Springs, and the Basin Park Hotel is the ideal home base for taking advantage of all downtown has to offer. 


At every turn, there is something for everyone to discover. From a historical museum that the kids would find interesting to the many secret paths, trails, and springs.  It’s different here and the kids will love adventuring, and you can feel comfortable giving them a little space to roam. 

Can’t Miss Idea: Kids’ Scavenger Hunt

Get started discovering the history and magic of the Basin Park Hotel and Eureka Springs by picking up your very own scavenger hunt kit from our resort host, which includes everything you need (plus clues!).  After finishing your search, celebrate by collecting your reward from our resort host! 


With so many places to stay in Eureka Springs, you might ask, “Why stay downtown at the Basin Park Hotel?”.  This answer is simple. Things get interesting at night!

Where did all the people go?

After dinner, that busy downtown becomes a creepy ghost town.  Parents may choose to window shop as the kids have the run of the place.  After dinner, return to the Basin Park Hotel for: 

  • Scary kids’ movies on the big screen start at 8pm in the Roof Garden
  • Star Gazing FROM THE ROOF happens at 10pm
  • The Paranormal Investigation and Ghost Hunt is at 10:30pm!
