I think if I were to do one thing in Hot Springs it would be to go up in this tower. Great views of bathhouse row, the Ouachita Mountains, and the rest of Hot Springs. The tower is less than 300 ft. tall, but the actual height above Hot Springs is probably 600 ft. or so. The road up to it is cool with several switchbacks through dense forest with scenic overlooks. The top floor is an open air deck and the next floor down is closed in with glass for those windy or rainy days. There is a small gift shop at the bottom of the tower.
With a coupon from the national park visitor center down on bathhouse row, the cost is $6 a person. Our infant daughter was free. I think the price was just about right.
