“Water. That's what first attracted people, and they have been coming here ever since to use these soothing thermal waters to heal and relax. Rich and poor alike came for the baths, and a thriving city built up around the hot springs. Together nicknamed "The American Spa," Hot Springs National Park today surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas. ”

“The Fordyce Bathhouse serves as the park visitor center. They have all things pertaining to the national park. There is a short movie that gives our history. I especially like the self guided tour where you can see what the "we bathe the world" logo meant. ”
