When visiting Hot Springs, Arkansas a must visit attraction are the "hot mineral baths" that have been attracting Presidents, dignitaries and scores of tourists since before the turn of the century. The warm mineral baths are believed to have medicinal power. Whether they do or not, a few hours in the heated pools of water drawn from deep below earth makes for a most relaxing experience. Of the half dozen bath houses, only the Quapaw Baths, named after the Indian tribe that lived in what is now considered Arkansas in the 1700's, is privately owned. All the rest of the baths are managed by the federal government. We had a most delightful afternoon at the Quapaw serviced by a most attentive staff.
