Set deep in the Ouachita Mountains, the city of Hot Springs almost completely surrounds the national park of the same name.
On the 7th (Fri), view the masterpieces at Artists' Workshop Gallery, then relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. Keep things going the next day: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hot Springs National Park and then stop by Bathhouse Soapery.
