While their condos are cozy and charming, you may not be spending much time inside when you stay at Los Lagos at Hot Springs Village. That’s because the resort is situated on over 26,000 acres of outdoor activities, which include hiking trails, six 18-hole golf course, boating on its two lakes, and more.
The resort community of Hot Springs, located less than 60 miles southwest of Little Rock, offers thoroughbred racing at Oaklawn Jockey Club, has a thriving small-town arts scene, and was the boyhood hometown of President Bill Clinton. But the primary attraction remains the natural thermal waters that gave the town its name. They flow out of the ground at about 147 degrees at Hot Springs National Park, nicknamed â€œThe American Spa.â€ The mineral pools put the town on the map in the late 19th century, and scores of celebrities sampled them in the 20th, including Babe Ruth, Harry Truman, Rose Kennedy, and Barbara Streisand. The Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, and Brooklyn Dodgers have vacationed here during spring training, and Al Capone used to rent out an entire floor of the Arlington Hotel on Central Avenue.
While youâ€™re here, be sure to take a stroll along Bathhouse Row, where visitors have been soaking in the hot springs for more than a century. You can take a traditional bath in an individual tub at the Buckstaff Baths, or tour the luxurious and historic Fordyce Bathhouseâ€”a precursor to the modern spa dating back to 1915.
