Springs Eternal
ll kinds of surprising things bubble up in Arkansas. From the early 1800s, the area has been a destination for the healing hot springs. Several spas, ornate hotels and bathhouses sprung up to steam and soak visitors. One of the cradles of such soothing waters is Eureka Springs in the northwest corner of the state. While the hot springs is a main attraction in Eureka Springs, there’s plenty to

do after a good soak. One such one-ofa-kind attraction is “The Great Passion Play,” a two-hour performance that recounts Jesus death and resurrection. With a cast of hundreds, the play is a don’t-miss spectacle. And for any tours that’ll be rolling through Eureka Springs from January to March, plan on catching the town’s Mardi Gras celebrations, such as a masquerade ball, artist showcase and downtown parade—sort of like New Orleans but without the crowds. Another place to steer clients to for a

relaxing dip is Hot Springs National Park. Called the American Spa, this national park surrounds the north part of Hot Springs, in the west-central part of the state, about eight miles off I-80. The park and town is ideal for quick stops or overnight stays. If just passing through, drop off clients for a tour of the park’s Fordyce Bathhouse with its ornate marble and stained glass decorations. And for a direction that’s a little different than the stately homes and spas, doll up for a visit to the Hot Springs Gangster Museum. With illegal gambling thriving here during the 1930s, Hot Springs drew some of the underworld’s most wanted men, including Al Capone and Lucky Luciano.
