Hot Springs is a place everyone should see. It's main attraction is Hot Springs National Park. It's the smallest National Park in the country, but it's also the most accessible. It's literally adjacent to the historic city of Hot Springs. The Park's most popular features are the historical bathhouses. There are eight magnificent bathhouses which together are called 'Bathhouse Row'. These huge bathhouses rival the ancient Roman versions. They were built at the turn of the 20th century during the 'Golden Age of Bathing'. Folks would come from all around to cure their ailments with the natural spring water which still comes out of the ground at 143 degrees.
