Roaring down a two-lane highway winding through forests of hardwood trees, each hill you and your bike crest offers another view of some of the most pristine country in the Ozark Mountains. Every turn reveals a bluff in the distance more beautiful than the last. You see bikes of all models with riders giving the familiar "motorcycle wave."
That’s what riding to Eureka Springs is like, and you haven’t even gotten into town yet.
Eureka Springs wasn’t built with motorcycles in mind when it was incorporated more than 130 years ago, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a more motorcycle-friendly city anywhere in the U.S. There are quite a few establishments catering to motorcyclists specifically, but you’ll receive friendly treatment anywhere in town.
Over the years, many motorcyclists have mapped out rides of various distances. You can take a six-hour trek and make a day of it, or choose a ride anywhere between a half day and one hour. Each one offers its own unique perspective of the landscape with serpentine roads through historic bridges, national parks or small-town communities scattered across the Ozarks.
You can easily access all of these rides as well as the must-see attractions in downtown from the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks. The inn is located on Highway 62, the starting point to all of these road journeys.
Guests can also rest easy knowing their bike is safe and parked nearby. Best Western Inn of the Ozarks offers secured, covered motorcycle parking, but availability is limited, so if you want to take advantage of this perk, make sure you call ahead.
After a day of winding rides, it’s time to unwind and settle in for some well-deserved rest. The Best Western Inn of the Ozarks is locally owned and operated by folks who understand Southern hospitality, making it the perfect lodging to get the most out of your motorcycling adventure.
