This was my first trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas. We were already in Tunica, Mississippi so we decided to spend a night in Hot Springs. Having never been there before, I always try to find a Country Inn & Suites Motel. This hotel has a very friendly staff, free cookies and beverage when you check in, continental breakfast and always excellent rooms. It is also located next door to Benningans, also near Waffle House, and a small mall. It was was trip that seemed all the way down hill driving from Tunica, Mississippi. It rained all the way.
I wasn't able to see all the sights I wanted to see because the dinner cruise wasn't going to be worth it in the rain. The next morning it was a beautiful day, the sun was great. We walked the downtown area which was about 3 miles from our hotel. I found out most sights are on Central Avenue where my hotel was. We went to the baths area where we saw the bath houses. Most are not open but a couple is in the process of remodeling. The downtown area is a pleasant place to walk because all the little shops are right across from the bathhouses. Parking was no problem. There is a "Duck Tour" you can take but my time ran out so I couldn't take it. Since I didn't go in the bathhouses...in from of one of them there are two springs where the spring waters flow up...you can stick your hand under the falls and feel how warm the water is...this is free.
Hotel rate was quite reasonable also. There is Oaklawn Racing Track there also.
One day I will go back and spend more time there..when it is not raining.
