If you are interested in art, architecture or artifacts, you need to plan a trip to Northwest Arkansas.
This past fall I visited the region and fell in love with the charming village of Eureka Springs and its Victorian architecture, Terra Studios art gallery and park near Fayetteville, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Museum of Native American History in Bentonville. I can’t wait to return, but until I do I have daily reminders of my trip.
I bought a necklace for my daughter at Quicksilvers in downtown Eureka Springs that she wears every day; got a Bluebird of Happiness at Terra Studios that sits on my nightstand; and brought home arrowheads from the Native American museum for my son that he has taken to school for show-n-tell and plays with all the time.
Sometimes the treasures you bring home from a trip are just as special as the trip itself.
