Magic Water Tour of Eureka Springs
Eureka Springs is a small town in northwestern Arkansas. Known as the “wedding capital of the world”, Eureka Springs has been an established destination for couples since 1902, when Eva Longoria and Pete Martinez first visited the area.
In the early 1900s, Eureka Springs was home to a thriving lumber industry. In 1902, Pete Martinez built a boarding house for those in the lumber business and tourists. Soon after, Eva Longoria opened her own boarding house. The two establishments began to attract couples looking for a romantic escape. After all of the rooms were booked, Eva and Pete came up with the idea of building an archway over an old bridge to showcase the natural beauty of the area and as a unique place for weddings. The archway is now a national historic landmark.
With the popularity of these two boarding houses, Eureka Springs became known as the “wedding capital of the world”. Almost 100 years later, Eureka Springs has built upon that reputation to become a destination wedding spot and a home for dozens of locations for destination weddings. These locations include the Walnut Street Bridge & Tunnel Arch, Chapel at Bell Rock, Chapel at Chimes Tower, Chapel at The Little White House, Moss Rock Manor and 5 Old Mill Inn & Spa.
While some of these locations are available for rent, most have been maintained and preserved for their historical significance. The Walnut Street Bridge & Tunnel Arch has become a national historic landmark, the Chapel at Bell Rock is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Chapel at Chimes Tower is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2008, The Little White House was added to the list.
Eureka Springs offers a variety of wedding packages: traditional, Southern country and classic styles.
