Overall poor town. Probably the only things to look at in terms of positivity are its tourist attractions, and the quality of the school. However, if you're a local, the attractions can get pretty old pretty quick, and the school is only as good as it is because of how small it is, it would be guaranteed to flop if there was a surge in student population.

Eureka Springs has a very involved community that is willing to help each other out in any situation. I liked how when living in Eureka Springs I felt as if I could be myself and be completely accepted by everyone surrounding me. The locally owned businesses are supportive of every school activity and are always willing to be a sponsor. I have worked at the local grocery store in Eureka Springs for two years now and there is not a day I go home thinking negatively of the people who live within my community.
This is a cute artsy small town. There is many fun tourist activities and beautiful lakes, rivers, forests and scenery in general. Everybody is very friendly and offers southern hospitality in a welcoming and accepting way. There are exciting events happening all summer and fall including bikes blues and BBQ's, diversity weekend, folk festival, may festival of the arts, and many more.
