Scenic Lookout
“Drive up past the Arlington Hotel to the overlook and if you desire go up the tower. There are many hiking trails on the mountain but I suggest you take a map.”

National Park
“AWESOMENESS!! If you truly want to know what they used to do to people, this is the place to go! It is a museum and captures echos of a past time that is filled with the energy of breakthrough. It's like revisiting the fountain of youth only a few hundred years advanced. (PS. the fountain of youth is in St. Augustine, FL. That is pretty cool too but don't drink the water!!)”

“Great area to spend the day. Visit Bath House Row and learn about the history of the city and the thermal baths. Visit the Gangster Museum and learn about the city's "dark side." Many boutique shop and restaurants line Central Avenue in Hot Springs.”

“A short ride on the cyclist friendly Park Avenue will connect you to phase one of the IMBA rated Hot Springs world-class Northwoods Trails, which include 15+ miles of mountain biking trails. Construction of the park began in November 2017 with plans for a 44.6 mile system of trails on the 2000 acre property in the Northern section of Hot Springs. This project represents an ongoing, collaborative effort to establish Hot Springs as one of the premier mountain biking destination in the United States. The Northwoods system includes Green, Blue and Black single track, multi-track, flow trails, jump lines and the Lucky 13 expert section.”

“Hot Springs has an amazing history with the greats of baseball from Jackie Robinson to Ty Cobb & Babe Ruth. Spend a couple hours following the Historic Baseball Trail and see where the "Babe" hit a monstrous home run - right into the Alligator Farm!”
