“Fun visit, but needs upkeep”

Hot Springs Mountain Tower
Ranked #10 of 83 things to do in Hot Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

The drive up is pretty, and the view is fantastic, but the building itself needs remodeling. Not a deal breaker, just needs some paint/upkeep. T-shirts only $10-12, which was a nice surprise.

If you're ever in Hot Springs, Arkansas you have to come here! The view is breath taking!! I am seriously afraid of heights but I conquered that fear. The view is worth it. The elevator kind of scared me though because of the creaking noise when you get closer to the top. The very top viewing floor is really cold and windy so me and my son went to the second floor where it is enclosed.

A must do!! Drive it up the winding road from the Arlington, or hike up the trail beside the old Army Navy Reserve to the top. Worth the time to do!! Get a nice walking stick or hiking staff.

Absolutely beautiful scenic drive up to the tower - Hillsides filled with different shades of Green - the wafting fragrance of blooming flowers - there are designated sites suitable for family picnics - elevator ride to the top is quick and smooth - for those who have an aversion to heights, this is not a scary scene looking over a great view of the Ozarks and this area - from this viewpoint you can see that Hot Springs is a quickly growing community - Visit the downtown area to see the original bath houses - tours are available - and sample the spa water at the free community water spout - A nice 2 hour stopover for us -

We did not acutally pay to climb the tower, but we did drive up to the observation deck and then explored around the area, hiking and such. The drive is BEAUTIFUL and the walk around/scenery is gorgeous as well!
