To start, check out the historic downtown shopping areas. These are some of the best shops for local arts and goods as Eureka Springs is home to over 600 local artists. Eureka's downtown shops are the place to find a plethora of works, although they are also available in stores outside of the downtown district and of course online. If art isn't your fancy, there is much more to shop for here downtown. One shop to check out is Eureka Springs Soap Stop which is home to all sorts of self-care items. All of these are homemade natural products are meant for self-indulgence and overall well-being.
Once you are done making your way through the more conventional shopping stops, check in with the working bunnies at East By West. You read that right working bunnies. These adorable critters will help finalize your purchase of unique souvenirs from this one-of-a-kind store.

Eureka Springs has several great places to eat while you explore all of the various attractions. For lunch or dinner check out Cathouse Lounge. As you enter historic downtown you will find this awesome pub but don’t let the biker bar reputation dissuade you from entering. All are welcome in this pub, and the staff is incredible! This is some of the best bar food in the area with a notable mention for their fish and chips, which are always fresh and crispy. Finish off your haunted happenings with a sweet treat from Colossal Cupcakes and Cones. These cupcakes are four times the size of your average cupcake and equally as sweet. These are just two mentions among many interesting and delicious options. Other honorable mentions include Ermillio’s Italian Eatery and Local Flavor Cafe.
