Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name.
Popular historic sites such as Fordyce Bathhouse (Vistor Center) and Anthony Chapel are in your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Bathhouse Row.

There's still lots to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and admire the natural beauty at Garvan Woodland Gardens.
