Hot Springs

4

Valley of the Vapors

Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name. The park's thermal springs (which lack the traditional sulfur odor typically associated with natural hot springs), and their reputed healing properties have attracted people to the area for hundreds of years. The Bathhouse Row district is a main tourist attraction in town, paying homage to the area's heritage and featuring architecture in Neoclassical and Renaissance-revival styles. The city of over 35,000 residents encompasses four historic districts and features sites from President Bill Clinton's childhood. Hot Springs is in Arkansas (AR). With our online itinerary creator, United States vacations can be built around trips to Hot Springs and other destinations in United States.
