For a gamut of reasons -- not the least of which being the area’s thermal waters -- Hot Springs has witnessed a huge wave of tourism in recent years. There’s tons of attractions, a quaint little main street, and yearly festivals -- so it's no wonder the town was recently ranked fourth in “America’s Top 100 Small Arts Towns.” Hot Springs boasts tons of rich history in the form of museums and entire districts with antiquated architecture. With all there is to do, visiting Hot Springs is a great family-friendly spot.
Topping the list of things to do in Hot Springs is -- you guessed it -- the hot springs. Hot Springs National Park was actually created before the idea of the National Park, making it the first section of land set aside by the government for preservation. Here, you’ll find plenty of warm waters to take a dip and relax. Bathhouse Row is another highlight of the town, featuring eight historic spas and bathhouses that date back centuries. Some have been renovated to museums while others are still in operation. Just a century ago, Hot Springs was a hotbed for all the American vices -- gambling, bootlegging, and illicit womanizing. Today, you can visit the Gangster Museum of America for a tour through the lives of some of the country’s most notorious criminals.
