Many people move to Eureka Springs because they have visited before and they just can’t get this town off of their mind. It’s easy to have the life you choose in Eureka Springs; one full of activities, groups and favorite pastimes or perhaps long unhurried days of watching deer graze on the hillside or a day of quiet reflection on the banks of one of our rivers or lakes.
Eureka Springs is a natural choice for new residents. Urban stresses of pollution, crime and traffic are far away from this idyllic mountain village and the temperate climate means parched summers and blizzard-ridden winters are only seen on the news, not outside your window. Eureka’s easygoing small-town Victorian charm is a perfect match for almost anyone wanting more from life than the stress of an urban rat race.
The rolling hills of the Ozarks mean that Eureka Springs experiences mild weather year-round. We have four distinct seasons that give visitors and residents an opportunity to enjoy soft spring flowers, sunny warm summer days, autumn’s scarlet and gold bounty, and an occasional winter snowfall. Average annual temperatures are 46 degrees to 71 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity ranges from the low 50s to the mid-70s and precipitation averages 45 inches per year.
