Eureka! I think I’ve found a great and relatively nearby pet travel destination. I love nature, I love history, and I love a little fantasy. And Eureka Springs, Arkansas has it all!

For fantasy, check out Castle Rogue’s Manor. I called them yesterday and confirmed that friendly pets on leashes are allowed. This is a scenic castle built from the native trees of the Ozarks, including black walnut and Arkansas red cedar. The following photos were taken by our friend Flea at the Jones Natural Chews blog.

For history, check out the following two videos of pet friendly places.

For nature… Well, Eureka Springs is situated in the Ozarks. There are nature trails galore! Hike to some interesting rock formations – Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge. Or go check out the Beaver Dam just west of town.

This pet travel destination is only four-and-a-half hours from where I live. Hmmm. Perhaps I should put the dog car harnesses on Maya and Pierson, hop in the car, and go to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. What do you think?

    Eureka Springs, and the surrounding areas, have great shops and hiking! The manor is actually on a bluff near the Beaver Dam campground. I took the top photo from our campsite a few years ago. The Beaver Dam campground was very dog friendly and had camping spots on the lake. There’s a one lane bridge to get on the road to get into Eureka Springs.

    When in Eureka Springs, it’s built into the side of a mountain. The little shops were somewhat dog friendly. We picked up the dogs’ water bowl we still use from the Life is Good shop. They had a bowl outside for visiting pooches.

    October was the perfect time to visit. The weather was amazing, the craft fair was in full swing, everything was on sale, the trees were GORGEOUS. I highly recommend this town as a travel destination.
