Fall Color in The Arkansas Ozarks – There is not a prettier place on the planet earth than The Arkansas Ozarks when autumn arrives. The mountainsides, the hollows, the hiking and mountain biking trails are painted with hues of gold, red, orange, and purple.  Mother Nature turns the emerald green hardwood trees of  summer into explosions of breathtaking color. View our Fall Webcam.   The views offered are refreshed every 15 daylight minutes.   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.

An Active Town – This Victorian village has developed a web of foot trails and challenging mountain biking trails for a way to see the rainbow of fall color right in town.  Take in the views of the Ozark Valley to Eureka’s East Mountain and over the top of the historic Saint Elizabeth’s Catholic Church.  Trolley or Tram Rides are a great way to view town and the Fall color.fall color eureka springs

Fall Color in Eureka Springs

 “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  These words of French philosopher Albert Camus best describe the Arkansas Ozarks when these emerald hills and hollows begin their transformation into their fall brilliance.  This brilliance acts like a tractor beam to area citizens who want to gaze upon this annual Technicolor spectacle.  And at least one Northwest Arkansas city is ready to welcome these throngs of elated leaf lookers once again.

“Eureka Springs, clothed in its glistening fall coat, is a traditional top five destination according to TripAdvisor for taking in the colors of autumn,” said Jack Moyer, past chairman of the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, “and we’ve surrounded Mother Nature with a plethora of fun events, activities and attractions.”

Events and activities include Gallery Strolls, Music In The Park, Dancing In The Park, Blue Grass Weekend, Voices In The Silent City, Oktoberfest, Zombie Crawl, Howl-O-Ween Spooktacular, and Diversity Weekend.  Attractions open in the fall include Crescent Hotel Ghost Tours, Spirits of The Basin Tour, Intrigue Theater, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Ozark Mountain Ziplines, Belle of The Ozarks, nearby Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and nearby Branson, Missouri.

“This total package is just what fall travelers to the Arkansas Ozarks are seeking,” Moyer added.

Digital electronics have further enhanced what Eureka has to offer.  “Every October we are inundated with telephone calls inquiring about our fall foliage.  ‘Have they started changing yet?’   Moyer explained that the solution was to have a webcam installed at the on the hotel grounds to watch the changing fall colors daily at eurekaspringsfallfoliage.com. 

“True, there is no better way to see our fabulous fall colors than up close and in person,” concluded Moyer, “In the meantime, we hope folks will enjoy this new fall foliage feature.  Our awesome, natural, autumnal feature performance of Mother Nature now can be shared worldwide.”
