Holiday in Hot Springs

Orientation

The spa resort of Hot Springs

Hot Springs is in Garland County, central Arkansas. The town is best known as the home of the Oaklawn Park Race Track but it is also where Bill Clinton spent his childhood years. The city lies within the Hot Springs National Park and gets its name from the hot springs which rise out of the surrounding Ouachita Mountains. Native American tribes visited the springs for their medicinal qualities and by the early 19th-century, Hot Springs was a popular spa resort.

A historic town with a colorful past

Major league baseball, speakeasies of the Prohibition era, illegal gambling, and famous gangsters have all contributed to the history and growth of Hot Springs leaving visitors a treasure-house of American history. Town attractions range from art galleries and top-quality restaurants to preserved bathhouses and the outdoor life of the surrounding countryside.

Getting there

The Clinton - Little Rock National Airport is just under an hours drive from Hot Springs while several major interstate and national highways, such as Interstate 30, US Highway 270, and Arkansas 7 also bring visitors to the town.

Activities

A sporty destination

With its spectacular mountain scenery and atmospheric hot springs, it is no surprise that outdoor enthusiasts love visiting the area. You will find tennis clubs and championship-level golf courses along with hiking, horseriding, and cycling in the Ouachita Mountains. Another major draw for sporting enthusiasts is, of course, the Oaklawn Park Race Track. Every spring this comes alive with the excitement of thoroughbred racing.

A wedding destination

You do not have to wait to get a marriage license in Hot Springs, a bureaucratic quirk that makes the town a popular wedding destination. There are many delightful licensed wedding venues in the town while historic properties or country cabins are perfect for your romantic honeymoon.

Taking the waters

For over 200 years, the therapeutic qualities of the thermal waters have been bringing visitors to Hot Springs. Although most of the bathhouses are now historic attractions rather than therapy centers, you will find many opportunities in town for indulging in some pampering spa treatments. Otherwise, simply enjoy discovering hot springs as you explore the national park.

With its gangster and Prohibition past, Hot Springs is no stranger to the shadier side of life and in 1874 the legendary outlaws Jesse and Frank James held up a stagecoach just outside the town.
