First time to Eureka Springs for a day trip from Branson

We are staying in Branson in a couple of weeks. We want to do a day trip to Eureka Springs. Best driving route? Best scenic place for lunch? Must do's? Passion play discounts?

Thanks so much for any suggestions!

Easiest and quickest route from Branson to Eureka is 65 south to 62 west. Much of it is now 4-laned. While this route is attractive, the most scenic route is 65 south to 86 west to 23 south. It will take a little longer and is more hilly.

For lunch with a dramatic view, try the 4th floor terrace of the Crescent Hotel. They call it the Sky Bar. drbakersbistro.com

The Balcony of the Basin Park Hotel offers a nice overview of the historic downtown. www.basinpark.com/balconybarrestaurant.shtml‎

Must sees: Thorncrown Chapel, Crescent Hotel, just walking the historic downtown, drive or walk through the historic residential district. Another way to see these and catch some dramatic views and some history would be to take a van tour. www.eurekavantour.com

Coupons do not seem to be available for the Passion Play. The website may sometimes offer them. Now, the website offers various packages, such as for families which save money over the individual tickets etc. If you plan to buy more than the basic ticket, there are some packages you can buy which may save some money.

Eureka is a wonderful town. My favorite thing to do there is to just leisurely walk the town and check out the interesting shops and architecture.
