About this event
Schonesland Porsche Club Eureka Springs Arkansas Tour.
This event takes place over the Labor Day Weekend
We are returning this year to Eureka Springs. Most of the roads will be the same phenomenal driver’s roads that we toured a few years back when we based the trip in Eureka Springs before moving Harrison for the last two years. If you are new to this drive the roads in Arkansas are amazing, this is a driver's drive and pretty much the best driving tour the club offers.
We formally start the drive from Joplin, Missouri with a welcome dinner Thursday night at the Mythos Greek restaurant that we have enjoyed last several years. Most of us will drive together from Des Moines to Joplin on Thursday (this part of the trip is not PCA sanctioned) with a lunch stop at the Toot Toot restaurant in Bethany, MO. If you are unable to join us in Joplin, you can join the group in Eureka Springs for Saturday's and Sunday’s drives, but you would miss a fantastic day of driving on Friday from Joplin to Eureka Springs with a nice Lunch Stop at the Flat Creek Restaurant in Fair Hope, MO.
For those driving together to Joplin on Thursday, we will meet at Hotel Renovo parking lot at 10:00 am with a planned departure at 10:15.
Friday morning, drive from Joplin to Eureka Springs through southern Missouri and Arkansas with the aforementioned lunch stop In Fair Hope and a couple of pit stops.
Saturday morning, drive south from Eureka Springs to Oark for lunch at the Oark General Store returning to Eureka Springs through the Ozark Francis National Forest.
Sunday morning, drive from Eureka Springs via Ponca to Jasper for lunch at the Ozark Café continuing to Mt. Judea (on the incredible Hwy 123) and then returning to Eureka Springs via the North-Eastern route.
Monday morning, drive home (optional and not PCA sanctioned) will include some good roads and minimal interstate use.
