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!
