Hot Springs

— 10 nights

Valley of the Vapors

Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Hot Springs Mountain. Kids will appreciate attractions like William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Spas. Venture out of the city with trips to Morrilton (Barnyard Friends Peting Zoo & Petit Jean State Park), Museum Of Discovery (in Little Rock) and Murfreesboro (Lake Greeson & Crater of Diamonds State Park). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Hot Springs National Park. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Fordyce Bathhouse, appreciate the extensive heritage of Bathhouse Row, find something for the whole family at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

The Natural State
With a diverse geography including mountains in the north, dense broadleaf forests in the south, and fertile lowlands in the east, Arkansas is aptly nicknamed the "Natural State." Still largely undiscovered by foreign tourists, the state hides a world of little-known lakes and rivers. Arkansas also includes vast state parks, offering visitors on vacation outstanding camping facilities in the middle of pristine natural areas sheltering blue herons, warblers, and bald eagles. Often stereotyped as little more than poor hillbilly country, Arkansas boasts a surprisingly diverse array of cultural attractions, including numerous museums, theaters, and cutting-edge sports venues. To learn about the real culture of Arkansas, explore its outstanding cuisine, traditional festivals, and lively music scene.
