Dallas Camera Club - Field Trips*


WHEN: NOVEMBER 1-5, 2023

I have made reservations at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks (Hotel in Eureka Springs AR | Best Western Inn of the Ozarks, 855-564-2515) in Eureka Springs, Arkansas for Nov. 1st-6th. There are plenty of places to stay in Eureka Springs, so you are not obligated to stay for the annual DCC Fall Color Field Trip, but it is convenient. They have a restaurant on site and will try to organize a group dinner for Friday night. There is more information about the trip on the club website. For those interested in RVing, Janice Goetz and others are staying at Wanderlust RV Park and Cabins (phone: 4792537385). If you have any questions, please contact me and I'll see what I can do to help. 

Eureka Springs (Eureka Springs Vacations & Getaways | Eureka Springs AR - Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, AR) is one of only twelve “Distinctive Destinations in America” according to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It was founded in 1879 and many of its Victorian homes are still standing. Eureka Springs has been called the “Little Switzerland of America” and the “Stairstep Town” because of its resemblance to European mountain towns. Eureka Springs (Eureka Springs | Arkansas.com) is also known as “The City that Water Built” because of the many springs that have been used by humans for thousands of years.

Eureka Springs is about a six-hour drive from Dallas in Northwest Arkansas. In addition to the immediate area around town (there should be a lot of photographic opportunities there, 16 Top Things to Do in Eureka Springs, Arkansas (usnews.com)) you can head east to Harrison to access the Maple Wood Cemetery (Best Places to See Gorgeous Fall Color in Arkansas - Somewhere In Arkansas) and the Headquarters of the Buffalo National River (Buffalo National River (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)). On another day you may wish to go west to Bentonville and visit Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and see where some the money you have spent at Walmart has gone. The area is rich in man-made and natural beauty (Ultimate NWA Fall Color Guide - Only In Arkansas, https://memphisprofessionalphotographer.com/fall-colors-of-arkansas/) to keep you busy for a few days. Just be careful driving down little dirt roads in the woods: if you hear banjo music, TURN AROUND!

I will have more information in the coming weeks. L
