As you walk through the town and around the Historic Loop, stop to enjoy some of the beautifully landscaped cold spring areas. As you can see, the town has landscaped these spring areas beautifully!
If you still have some energy left after the Historic Loop, visit Lake Leatherwood. It's a 1610 acre recreation area with over 25 miles of hiking and biking trails around a spring fed lake.
Black Bass Lake is another area to visit. It's got 2 miles of trails and bluffs surrounding it, and includes a half mile trail that is handicapped accessible. This is great because not all areas of this mountain town are accessible.
After taking in all the beauty and nature Eureka Springs has to offer, give your dog an extra treat by taking him to Bark Park, located in Harmon park. Note that There are no Wolf Hybrids permitted in the dog park and there’s a limit of 2 dogs per person. They also don’t permit prong or choke collars (YAY!), nor do they permit collars with spikes on them.
One of the sunken spring areas, so lovely!
There are plenty of dog friendly hotels and B&B’s in Eureka Springs, as well as dog friendly places to eat (on outdoor patios).
I found a fantastic dog friendly Inn in the center of Eureka Springs called the Peabody House. I couldn't believe this beautiful B&B was dog friendly! We had a separate little cottage behind the main Inn that I just loved. For some weird reason, it reminded me of a Sea Captain's house. I honestly don't know what made me feel like that, LOL!
Our cottage was a quaint two story house with a deck off the bedroom upstairs. The deck was literally RIGHT next to the mountain - I swear you could practically reach out & touch the mountain! We loved that, and we enjoyed sitting out there each morning and evening with our dogs. I was so comfortable in the Peabody House, I didn't want to leave at the end of our stay!

If you're looking for a wonderful Fall trip, I highly recommend a trip to The Natural State, especially to Eureka Springs!
My next 100 Places To See With Your Dog will cover HOT Springs, Arkansas which is in the Southern part of the state. Stay tuned.
