Water. That’s what attracts people to Hot Springs. People have used the hot springs here for more than two hundred years to treat illnesses and to relax. Both rich and poor came for the baths, and a town built up around the Hot Springs Reservation to accommodate them. Together nicknamed "The American Spa,” Hot Springs National Park today surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
I love to know that finally I could find something here near where I live to take my daughter and family to hang out because I thought there was nothing I'll think of me out a great holiday. This is great! I am happy to know that there is something here
Great place to fish, camp, ski, wake board, float the river, wade the creek, jump from the tree. tube the rivers..Eat the good food...Look at the beautiful mountains. family and friends love it so much they just cant get outta there. Lots of wildlife...Watchout for the Mullets and the Bucks they are hairy jerrys...
This is a great National Park with tons of trails for hiking. The trails vary in length and difficulty (ranging from the flat bricked Grand Promenade where you can look at the historic bath row to the steep hike and views from Hot Springs Mountain Trail (starting at the water tower).
There are picnic areas where you can stop for a snack or lunch and plenty of benches throughout the park for a rest.
Hot Springs is a spa town with both private and public baths for a fee. It is also near a crystal mine where you can dig for crystals with your family.
This area makes a great weekend getaway.
We went to see the fall colours there cuz it's near Texas which sadly doesn't have any. It was beautiful - you can time your trip with help from the Arkansas tourism website. It had many enjoyable and easy trails for even pre-schoolers to run along. The hot springs have all been channelled to bath houses, so the only steaming hot water was 1or 2 public fountains to look at (slightly disappointing).
