Blue Spring is definately worth visitng. The staff at the Heritage Center are very friendly and helpful. The self guided tour winds through beautifully tended gardens to and surrounding the spring. It was a very peaceful and calming experience. We stopped and dipped our feet in the "healing" waters which was VERY cold even in July. Visitors can take the... More

Blue Springs is absolutely gorgeous. The amount of water and the color of it is fascinating. It's a self guided tour and there is a lot of walking involved, but worth every bit of it.

My husband and I enjoyed the Springs and Gardens tremendously. It was a spiritual and educational experience. The gardens were peaceful and relaxing. It usually takes and hour to tour the grounds but we took our time and it was two hours before we ended back up in the gift shop. It's a must see if your in the area!

I loved the whole experience! The huge spring was awesome, and all of the history at this place is really amazing. The Trail Of Tears is something everyone should learn about. I highly recommend this area attraction. I was there only once in the seven years I lived in the Eureka Springs area, and I wish I would have taken... More

We loved the Blue Spring! You got to experience a lot of American history there. The spring is fabulous to take pictures of and you are able to put your feet into the water, which is 47° or around there. Just beware of people wanting to take professional pictures at the spring, which was our only complaint. You can also... More

The springs was as beautiful and relaxing as last visit 20 years ago. The auditorium area smelled rank and moldy.

We came here on a recommendation from our waiter at a restaurant where we had breakfast. I'm glad we made the time to visit because the spring is just beautiful. Watch the video before you start walking to see the diving excursion exploring the spring which was interesting. Beautiful walk around the gardens.

Talk about a Spring! This is the big one! On the Trail of Tears, this stop is a beautiful, reflective, healing place with lush gardens that hold quiet and historic significance. The true blue of the water is surreal and information there explains why. The "overhang" of the rock formations there show very evident, historic signs that a camp was... More

We went out to walk on the actual Trail of Tears and the flowers are amazing. Staff is very friendly and informative. The Spring and blue water is beautiful also. Can't believe 38 million gallons flow everyday and you can dip your feet in it too. Very moving and touching place.

We were greeted warmly and had a good time strolling through the facility. A few of the gardens were under construction but for the most part, we enjoyed the afternoon there.
