Travel Tips for Hot Springs

Garvin Gardens

by grandmaR

We drove a short distance from the hotel over to the Garvin Woodland Garden. We had another coupon, and we got in for the senior rate $5 minus $1 each took the golf cart tour which was $6 each. This was very enjoyable. There were snowdrops and crocuses out, and some daffodils, some camellias, and an occasional azalea. There were a lot of water features, waterfalls and bridges.

Afterwards they asked me to fill out a questionnaire about how we had liked it, and one of the questions was what other Botanical Gardens we had visited. I started to try to list them and remembered 12 of them, but I forgot the Santo Domingo Botanical Garden, the Birmingham Botanical Garden and the Brookgreen Gardens in SC. That would have made 15.

This year (in addition to Santo Domingo and Birmingham) we've been to
*Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
*Bellingrath Gardens
*Harry Leu Garden

Previous years

Central Avenue Old Buildings with Decoration

by BruceDunning

These structures are really quite magnificent and some still kept in good condition. Most are form 1920-30's era, and brick was the thing to build with then to protect from fires, as happened in the past. The Plaza hotel may be open and comments says has 35 rooms. The adjacent building was on old movie theater that still has a balcony overhang with bulb lights.

Hot Springs, Arkansas

by geanster

Hot Spring's is only a 4 hour drive from Dallas, who knew. My friends and I headed that way in April for a friend's wedding. It was a very cute little town that is a nice quaint size and touristy enough to give you something to do.

The town revolves around the strip of bathhouses that were used for many years as basic cure-alls, there is one that is still active and you can schedule appointments there for your own enjoyment.

The water that comes from the natural sources are extra warm, it's a very interesting phenomenon. While we were there, there was a jazz festival going on in the middle of the town. We did find an okay club with pool tables, music, dancing. We walked down the main street and watched people blowing glass, tasted the most amazing fried pickles, and hiked up the most challenging route to the look-out tower.

Overall, it really did feel like a holiday, and so close-by.

We hiked up this hill by a route that was labeled as one of the more challenging. We took multiple breaks on the way, but the view at the top was pretty worth it. We went into the Hot Springs Mountain Tower which you can see above the trees in this photo, but decided not to pay to go to the top as we were being frugal, and had been told the view didn't get significantly better than what we'd already seen.

"Following information from www.hotsprings.com"

For centuries, this misty Ouachita mountain valley was revered by Native Americans as a place of neutrality where all tribes could bathe in peace. In 1832 Congress set aside the thermal springs site as a federal reservation, making Hot Springs the oldest park in the national park system protected by law.

Until the advent of modern medicine in the late 1940's, visitors from around the world flocked to the springs to bathe in its healing thermal waters. Modern generations have carefully preserved the rich history of the springs and the bathing rituals that made the springs a world attraction.

Cool mineral water also flows from these magical springs, and when you visit Bathhouse Row National Park, you'll probably see folks driving up in their cars, hopping out and filling up their water jugs. Take a sip and see how delicious Hot Springs' cool water can be.

Take a tour through the past in the Fordyce Bathhouse and Visitors Center on historic Bathhouse Row and bathe your tensions away in 147 degrees of soothing mineral spring water at one of Hot Springs modern, full-service spa salons.
