Hot Springs


 

This past weekend, my wonderful mother came to visit!  On the last day of her visit, we took a short trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas.  The little town is a must-see when in Arkansas, so I was excited to visit!  If it wasn’t apparent by the name, Hot Springs is just that- a town full of hot springs.  The springs are a national park, and are protected by the federal government.  The park has hiking trails and an old bathhouse open as a museum and visitor center.  In the early 1900’s, there was a booming bathhouse industry that used the 140 Fahrenheit degree water from the springs to cure various ailments and give visitors a place to relax.  Those bath houses still stand in ‘Bathhouse Row.’  It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed sightseeing and a hike!
