A fun, artsy, funky & historic town literally built into the side of the Ozark mountains. Plenty of restaurants, shops & art galleries to explore by foot or hop on a convenient trolly. Dont miss the opportunity to explore the Crescent Hotel, rumored to be the most haunted hotel in the US. Protip: save $20 on the ghost tour by... More

This was such a fun activity for the kids. It is just a short train ride, but long enough to enjoy without getting tired of it. Both times we have gone, they let us put coins on the tracks for the train to run over. A fun day for young and old alike.

The best thing about this train ride was the conductor. He was full of information about Eureka Springs and trains and railroad history. And he obviously thought it was important to give the most entertaining history lesson possible!

Of all the exciting things Eureka Springs has to offer the dinner on the train was the best. Fine Dining with a four course meal. The historic dining car is beautiful and the whole night was wonderful from the staff to the food. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and the dessert was as amazing to see as it... More

Waste of money and time the train was late and you take in more sights just driving yourself it was just a bunch of trees no real scenery. Terrible and if you are interested in getting a 15 dollar nap in then this is definitely for you. People working were great. Just not an experience I want to experience again.

We went on the dinner cruise and had a great time. The dining car was beautifully restored, it was like stepping back in time. The service and meal (we had the chicken) were wonderful and the baked Alaska dessert was a perfect finale. It was a very classy and romantic evening, I would definitely recommend it.
