Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name.
Bring the kids along to Crater of Diamonds State Park and Mid-America Science Museum. There's lots more to do: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, stop by Bathhouse Soapery, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Ouachita, and take in nature's colorful creations at Garvan Woodland Gardens.

To find where to stay, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Hot Springs travel planning tool .

Monroe to Hot Springs is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. In June, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
