Warm Water Warm Hearts an Oasis in the Hills | Hot Springs, South Dakota

Walking around town there is a great mix of coffee shops, restaurants, book and antique stores. You can find just about anything here. The town is home to the Fall River Pioneer Museum, Public Library, Chamber of Commerce, and Evans Plunge all within walking distance from the motels.

If you happen to be traveling through or thinking about relocating, then Hot Springs has much to offer. Don’t forget to check out Highway 79 Brewery and Scratch Kitchen for great food with a microbrewery.

Me and my family moved to Hot Springs in 2010, and we opened a local business. We love the small town vibe, although I think the town could use some spicing up -- something to do at night, you know. Crime is very low, and you are close to plenty of outdoor activities. We enjoy living here, especially how everything is walking distance from everything else!
Growing up in hot springs for my entire life has been a huge struggle. if i was asked if its a good place to live i would look into that persons eyes and tell them honestly to run in the opposite direction. most people that live here do not enjoy living here, which makes it hard to have a great community, and especially as a teenager in high school, this place is a nightmare. so many recent graduates end up coming back and working 9-5 jobs barely making it by because this town failed them and all their potential.
