Christmas in Eureka Springs

Christmastime in Downtown Eureka Springs

The Holidaytown of Eureka Springs during the Christmas season is the most magical destination in Arkansas.  Businesses and residents deck the halls with colorful lights ablaze throughout the historic district and share the warmth of a small-town Christmas with visitors. At the spring where it all began, The Basin Park Hotel is the heart of all the holiday activities and events in the downtown district.

Open the front door, you will enjoy the twinkling lights as you stroll down Eureka Springs’ historic streets.  Admire the festively decorated storefronts on Main and Spring Street as well as the lovely Victorian properties that “dress up” for Christmastime.

While the shopping is the attraction, what rounds out the experience is the hotel.  Located on Spring Street inside the shopping district, guests of the Basin Park Hotel can gift themselves overnight comfort, great food, warm whisky, and some pampering at Spa1905.  

Hotel activities include live music, passes to the museum,  Whisky, wine, and egg nog tastings, a year-round hot tub and fire-pit, DIY holiday gift-making, prosecco splits, and neighborhood cocktails as well as brisk morning walks and walking tours to Underground Eureka.  

Home of Eureka’s Best burger, The Balcony Restaurant overlooks Spring Street, is a great place to watch the parade or enjoy music from the park, and is open daily serving both inside and out.  

Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar & Game Room is an iconic landing place to gather with friends.  Warm whisky in front of the fireplace or a spirited game of foosball all can be enjoyed here.

Our day spa, Spa1905 is a perfect place to relax and unwind with a mineral bath or soothe those tired feet with a relaxing salt scrub and foot massage.  Mineral baths begin at just $35.  Holiday discounts on couples Duet Massage are available on weekdays.

Mid-week rooms come with free upgrades during the holiday season.  With Basin Park known for its whirlpool suites and comfortable beds, an evening of comfort is ensured.

It really is the most wonderful time to escape to Eureka Springs and shop locally! Shopping small on Spring Street offers a wonderful holiday experience that online shopping simply can’t match, handpicking unique items for your loved ones, and basking in the magical holiday ambiance.  It’s fun to shop this way, plus you can have confidence leaving the store with the perfect gift while others are watching tracking codes and hoping a delivery truck makes it by Christmas Eve.  Plus the rewards for your accomplishments are great.
