The Legendary Fat Jacks Oyster & Sports Bar. The BEST Oysters in Arkansas! Great Food! Great Music! Great Friends!
Agree with comment above . The park is not your typical one it is on the town you can tour a bath house and see a few springs. Ok for adults my kids were boref
Please note this National Park is basically a square in the middle of town, connected to a bunch of gardens on top of it. Totally worth the visit, but dont let your gps lead you to the wrong destination.
I was driving in circles till i gave up and went to town for a walk. Then, wallah! The sign shocked me in the moddle of the city.
Follow the free parking sign to the lot. Come out, cross the street, and head left to the visitor center. We spent most of our time hiking, taking pictures of the various fountains, & visiting the tower & we thought it was great. Didn't actually visit the bath houses. ;-)
Very charming!!! Definitely worth a visit. Gorgeous old houses, a place of luxury that has sort of gone to seed, which is sort of fascinating. Everyone who works there was lovely. We went for an hour on our way through Arkansas and it was so worth it
First, park downtown to walk through the visitor's center. We learned a lot and saw some unusual things! Then, walk or drive a little farther to explore the "nature" part of the park. Make time for a spa treatment! We ended up loving it, but the area was congested/touristy, and navigating the area and the best way to explore the hot spring and park was confusing.
I loved my road trip to Hot Springs NP! I love the history of the park and how the town essentially built up around the park. Stayed at the historic Arlington hotel right across the street from the National Park and walking distance to Bathhouse Row. Wonderful for history buffs and National Park seekers.
This was definitely a disappointing stop. I expected it to be a natural National Park with hot springs. Instead, it was VERY touristy. It was literally just a busy town square that was crowded with people. I wasn’t sure what drew everyone in. Seems pretty bland to me. Being able to drink from the springs that were oddly behind the buildings, was a nice perk!
Lovely place for a walk
Although closest to my home, I've never visited until last week. I must say I felt like I was in a time warp. Nothing screams modern on the main drag. The park is small but mighty. Since it's free; don't pass up this opportunity to check it out. We will revisit in the winter when we'll consider getting in the baths.
Absolutely charming area and a nice walk. The museum was interesting but in a historical way. Very pleasant and quaint but the area around it clearly made for tourists. Not in a bad though. A few blocks with restaurants, shops, and storefronts surround it. Fun but I don't think kids would like it much.
