Hot Springs

Summer Cobb

Hot Springs is a very popular vacation place in Arkansas with multiple activities and venues for all vacationers. Below, we have examined some of the most well liked spots in the Ouachita Mountains.

 A great place to go to is the Hot Springs National Park. There are many trails to walk or hike with beautiful foliage and wildlife. The beautiful Hot Springs creek is great for swimming. Another place to visit is the Gangster Museum. It is filled with interesting facts that range from Al Capone all the way to Owen Madden. 

Two of the most visited places are Magic Springs and the Arlington Resort Hotel and Spa. Magic Springs is a water and theme park with rides that include Big Bad John, X-Coaster, Rum Runner Pirate Ship, and many more. Both theme park and hotel can be booked as a package deal. If live animals are exciting, the Alligator Farm is a great stop to hold a baby gator and feed the momma with a stick! The farm has over 300 gators and many other animals including  an emu, deer, goats, ponies, sheep, ducks, Arkansas mountain lions, wolves, peacocks, and others.

 A top spot place to go is Funtrackers Family Park. With multiple activities, people of all ages can have fun. Race go karts, bumper boats (squirt water from your boat onto an opponent), and laser tag are just a few of the attractions.  

My absolute favorite place to go is Rocket Fizz. Rocket Fizz has all types of candy and sodas. The store has flavors that you can’t get anywhere else.  The local shop also has different soda flavors like bacon, pie, corn, chocolate covered strawberries, and butter. If you’re looking for a fun vacation Hot Springs would definitely be the spot!
