Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name.
Bring the kids along to Crater of Diamonds State Park and Mid-America Science Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Hot Springs: Little Rock (Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, William J. Clinton Presidential Library, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Garvan Woodland Gardens, pause for some serene contemplation at Anthony Chapel, appreciate the extensive heritage of Bathhouse Row, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Hot Springs trip planner.

In August, daytime highs in Hot Springs are 90°F, while nighttime lows are 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
