I've been a business owner for many years. I want to relocate to E.S., should I? I'm sure business is slow during non-tourist season... my hometown in a different part Arkansas is blah and theres no interest in art or anything unique, and I've never fit in here very well. Just thought I'd see what kind of input I'd get.

@belly bob,

Knowing the type of business is crucial to answering your question. Several non-tourism industry business have located or opened in Eureka Springs in the past several years, some of which are doing very, very well. One has a backlog of orders the owner says will keep him working for decades.

Tourism is up big time as well. Unlike Branson and some of the other tourist towns in the area that are down or flat, our tourism tax is up 16% over last year, which was up from over the year before.

I've owned and worked in hair salons for over a decade, I also sew and make handmade baby items and children's items.
