This is a very interesting place. The history is fascinating. The park headquarters is in one of the old bathouses. You can take a guided or self guided tour of the facility.We were there for about 2 hours. The town and park are one.You have to pay to park. We parked in a covered public parking garage. There are parking meters at every space. We fed it alot of quarters. We went over our time, but did not get a ticket. Bathouse row is level ground, but the rest is hilly and steep in some places.The bathouse row side is Federal and the other side of the street is city and state. There are lots of shops and a few eateries. The Ohio CLub has great food at a reasonable price. You have to be 21 years or older to go in.It was established in 1905 and has the original moirrors and carved wood surround. Lots of old time celebrities and gangsters went there. The downtown area might take a day, but there isn't much else to see, unless you drive around in the national park area. We found a small camping-day park-just ouside of Hot Springsoff of hwy 7 N-Gulpha Park. It has a sign at the turn off. You can wade in the beautiful water,( see small fish , crawfish (even a small snake!) or go up the mountain on Goat Trail and see the spectacular view from several overlooks. The climb is a little steep, in places, but the views are well worth it.
