My family and I have visited Hot springs twice and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. As a child I would go to Gatlinburg Tennessee and haven't been able to go back. Hot Springs definitely have me my mountain fix though and brought back so many memories. It is such a cute little town with so many friendly people and lots of things to do. My kids also enjoyed it as well and even though they are too young to appreciate nature like I do, my oldest always asks when we are going to go back! I highly recommend visiting especially if you need a get away on a budget.

This place is an awesome place! Even though it's the smallest US National Park, it feels like it's a good size once you're in it. The hiking here is very nice and there's quite a bit of wildlife. Also, no fee to enter! Thats awesome! The trip was abbreviated because it was so hot, but I would definitely return here.

Small. Squeezed in between urban development. The lack of remoteness leaves little natural features to enjoy. Nice views. Nice roadways leading up each side. A few walking trails. Bathhouses at the base of the hill at the edge of town. Not much else to do.

Very interesting park. The bath houses were very interesting and the tour was great. The Junior Ranger program was also well done. The contraptions that they put people into were really weird and medieval. The bath house was well preserved. Thank you for a nice visit.

The walking trails through thick and dense forest was awesome. The scenic view from the top of the mountain is breathtaking. We had hard time finding the 'hot spring'. It is just opposite to the Arlington hotel. Once we found it was really thrilling experience with the natural hot water. The streets of this city are like '365 day Carnival'.
