Day 3-Arsenic and Old Lace Inn
Day three took us even further south into the Ozarks of Arkansas, which we were immediately met with the smells of chickens, cows and a skunk in the first 10 minutes. The city of Eureka Springs, where we stayed last night, was by far the most interesting city we've stayed at with the most character. A lot of quirks to the city and a big tourist spot during mid-fall and early summer. We had dinner right on Main Street on the Eureka Springs Historic Loop at a place called Local Flavor. The Arsenic and Old Lace Inn in Eureka Springs was a quintessential bed and breakfast, with several guest rooms with the mansion adorned with traditional furniture and artwork. The views from the balcony were great. From the porch and some of the rooms you could look out over the Ozark Mountains, and even spot a glimpse of the largest Jesus in America. Seriously. Breakfast was an excellent french toast souffle with one of my faves: bippidy, boppody, bacon. We enjoyed talking with fellow guests who were loyal Select Registry Inn travelers and got a tour from one of the innkeepers, Doug, who was so nice and such a conversationalist, he would've spent all day with us if we didn't have to get on the road to Norman, Oklahoma.
