Hot Springs, Arkansas, was the first resort in the United States. Today, guests can still enjoy the bathhouses on Bathhouse Row, and many of the hotels and spas located in the downtown district pump the water from the hot springs into their establishments. Area attractions include Bailey's Dairy Treat, the Antiques Showroom and Bathhouse Soapery and Caldarium.
Hot Springs is located in central Arkansas within the Ouachita Mountains in Garland County. The city is serviced by the Memorial Field Airport (HOT) located 3 miles southwest of the city. Visitors can utilize the city's public bus system to reach the historic downtown district where Hot Springs National Park is located.
Summer travelers can expect high temperatures in the upper 80s. Spring and fall travelers will enjoy temperatures that range between 60 and 75 degrees, and winter travelers see highs in the low to mid 40s. Hot Springs was designated as a federal reservation in 1832 by President Andrew Jackson. In 1921, Hot Springs Reservation was renamed to Hot Springs National Park. The city gets its name from the local thermal springs, which pump water at more than 140 degrees. It is estimated that the springs produce more than 1 million gallons of water for the area each day.
