Hot Springs, Arkansas offers a variety of fun and beautiful options! If you enjoy the outdoors, check out one of three surrounding lakes for excellent fishing, swimming and boating. If you'd rather stay on dry land, Garven Gardens is an excellent place to visit while enjoying the botanical gardens or maybe you'd rather check out the bathhouse row which was established as early as 1892! There are plenty of amazing restaurants and quality spas in the area as well! So many things to say about Hot Springs but it should definitely be on your life of places to visit!
