I currently just moved to Eureka Springs to manage an Inn. Such a unique little town.

Do you guys know other towns that are like Eureka? Little resort towns solely bases on tourists, etc?

GO HOGS!!

yep, go HOGS, let's hope. Well the closest I know, but I am not an expert on all of AR by anymeans would be Hot Springs. It certainly isn't totally dependent on tourist trade and is larger than Eureka Springs, but is similar in many ways.

Well, if you are talking about anywhere I have been to Solvang, CA, which is patterned after a Danish town and to Helen Georgia, which is in the mountains and is "alpine"

oh, other states? I imagine every state has one. NM, it would probably be Taos or Riudoso, yes, CA. Solvang plus many of the cities north of San Francisco and a few east and northeast of Sac. How about Jackson Hole, Wy?

I am sure the list will grow, lets see what others have to say.

Yup, I've been to Wall South Dakota.
( The town is named Wall, Wall drugstore is what made it popular originally )

A few others--------Shipshawane Indiana, an Amish (?) town that is a huge tourist attraction with tour busses running there.

Mount Vernon KY-----home of the original Renfro Valley Gathering ( a syndicated radio show originally)

And certainly Hardy AR would qualify.

Been to all of those mentioned and I never thought it was a waste of time.

Oh and speaking of Amish, there are some really awesome small towns like Middlesex in PA that are Amish and quite touristy. They too have the tourist buses with some great "old time family" cooking restaurants.
