Hot Springs On The GO!

S um­mer is of­fi­cially in full swing. To me, sum­mer­time is in­ex­tri­ca­bly linked to Hot Springs, and part of the rea­son for that is be­cause, grow­ing up, Hot Springs would be­come my sec­ond home while school was out. As a kid in Lit­tle Rock I would dream about tak­ing that hour-long trip to a place where I could es­cape to lazy days spent on the lake but also a place I could cook up ad­ven­tures with my sib­lings and friends.

In essence, the hap­pi­est mem­o­ries of my child­hood are from Hot Springs. This sum­mer, you can bring out the kid in you by check­ing out some of the ad­ven­tur­ous ac­tiv­i­ties that Hot Springs of­fers. This is­sue, we’re high­light­ing some of the most fun and thrilling ac­tiv­i­ties found in the area, such as zi­plin­ing, moun­tain bik­ing and kayak­ing.

If you’re look­ing for some­thing more re­lax­ing but just as ex­cit­ing, check out Garvan Wood­land Gar­den’s Mys­tic Crea­tures ex­hibit, which will be on dis­play un­til Aug. 31. Top­i­aries are made to look like fairy­tale crea­tures and mag­i­cal beasts, and it’s truly a sight to see.

We’re also spot­light­ing the Miss Arkansas pageant, tak­ing place June 15-21, where 46 lovely and tal­ented ladies will com­pete to be­come the state’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the Miss Amer­ica pageant.

We’ve also added two new fea­tures in this month’s mag­a­zine — a home makeover and a fash­ion makeover — that we hope you en­joy.

Have a great sum­mer. I hope it’s full of ad­ven­ture, fun and magic.
