My Arkansas Escape!

The Department of Parks and Tourism is sponsoring a contest where you can “create your own escape” and be entered to win your dream escape!

I entered, and you can see my dream escape here...but I can basically recap it for you- because we have already taken this trip! It was SO wonderful, I would do it all over again!

I chose to visit Eureka Springs. There is something so peaceful about that little town.  I just love it.

I chose the 5 Ojo Inn for our lodging.  We stayed there last time, and the cottages were so quaint…but the best part was the food!  They made a 3 course breakfast for us!  SO good!

For relaxation, the ultimate in Eureka Springs is the New Moon Spa at the Crescent Hotel.  Y’all.  Best massage of my life, hands down.

For dinner, I can’t imagine going to Eureka Springs without visiting Ermilio’s for some yummy Italian.  Everything is amazing there, but they have a goronzola alfredo sauce that is to die for. YUM.

Blurry, but this was us outside Ermilio’s.

And for some fun, I would love to go back to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.  Not only is it amazing to support an organization that rescues and cares for these animals, but it is so fascinating to learn about these creatures.  Our favorite was going at feeding time and hearing the lions roar!

Beautiful tigers at Turpentine Creek!

We would LOVE to go back to Eureka Springs for a little getaway!

Enter to create your own escape here! Arkansas is an AMAZING state that offers just about any getaway you could imagine. Get out there and explore our natural state!


  1. We LOVE Arkansas! I took my daughters on a train ride there last year with some of my family. {my cousins are in college there & my aunt & uncle live in Muldrow, Ok….} So they’re in Arkansas often. I’ll have to check out the 5 Ojo Inn next time we’re in Eureka Springs. {We go once a year on our way home from Branson}
