This historic Victorian town offers an experience at Christmas that gives a nod to Dickens as well as contemporary holiday lights. Eureka Springs embodies the romantic revival of Christmas traditions embraced by Charles Dickens’ 1843 masterpiece, « A Christmas Carol, » which rekindled the joy and spirit of Christmas, the season of giving and thinking of the less fortunate.

The city is the ideal stage with its Victorian-era architecture. On street after street, turn-of-the-century homes in vibrant colors, flower bouquets hug cliffs. Secluded and peaceful, Eureka Springs’ entire downtown area is on the National Register of Historic Places. It feels as though you could see Dicken’s character Tiny Tim ‘round each corner of the historic downtown.

In more modern style, Eureka Springs also sets the city ablaze with colorful lights. Not only can you drive the streets to see holiday decor, but attractions like the Great Passion Play also offer a large drive-through light display.

Eureka Springs spreads the holiday spirit with its ambiance as well as through its numerous holiday events and activities. Check dates and times here, Christmas in Eureka Springs and #OnlyInEureka (eurekaspringsdowntown.com)
