The charming town of Hot Springs and Hot Springs National Park are named after their naturally occurring phenomena, 47 natural hot springs. You can tour the historic Forsythe Bathhouse before taking a dip in the traditional Buckstaff Bathhouse, which has been open since 1912. You can also have a modern-day spa experience at the park's Quapaw Baths and Spa. Once you feel rejuvenated, visit the 216-foot-tall Hot Springs Mountain Tower for a stunning view. Hiking, biking, bird-watching, horse racing and exploring Garvan Woodland Gardens are also entertainment options in Hot Springs.
