I've been going to the Jefferson Pools for years, and I love the fact that they remain unchanged in all that time. As a matter of fact, the Men's bathhouse is the oldest spa structure in the United States - and remains in much the same condition as you might have found it in 1800, when it was already nearly 40 years old. If you are visiting with family, you should research the times for family time. Historically, the springs are visited "au natural" - in the buff - but there are separate times in the day that the buildings are open to co-ed bathing. The waters are, indeed, very relaxing. Float on your own or with a noodle for about an hour. Great meditation and it does your body good.
