ROADTRIP of the day:

Today we’re traveling to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Arkansas: Eureka Springs in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas. Eureka Springs is a resort town with steep winding streets of an alpine character, with an extensive streetscape of well-preserved Victorian buildings. In addition to its natural charm, ES is a popular destination for art aficionados (20+ galleries), religious tourists (a version of the Passion Play is hosted each year), and people seeking natural healing in the waters of the local hot springs. As if that weren’t enough, though, Eureka is also home to the World's Largest Tuned Musical Windchime weighing in at 653 lbs. and tuned in an Oriental pentatonic scale, like the black keys on a piano, with the longest and shortest tubes emitting notes an octave apart.
