Hot Springs National Park

America’s oldest park is bubbling with history, natural beauty, and, of course, therapeutic mineral water.

About

In 1832, the United States Congress passed a bill protecting Hot Springs National Park for future recreation - decades before the “National Park” concept. But the site’s history goes back much further. Native Americans had been coming here for over 8,000 years to take advantage of the healing waters and quarry novaculite for their tools and weapons. Through the 19th and early 20th centuries, Hot Springs was a thriving spa town - a history preserved on Bathhouse Row. Take a stroll to admire the historic architecture, and maybe try some of the healing waters for yourself. The Buckstaff, built in 1912, still offers a traditional bathing experience, while other spa houses have been repurposed into hotels, breweries, and cultural centers. While you’re in town, don’t forget to fill up some water bottles with the famous spring water!
