Long ad­ver­tised as “The Na­tion's Health Re­sort” and “The Great­est Health and Plea­sure Re­sort in the World,” Hot Springs has al­ways been a place for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to get fit. From 1886 up to the 1940s, pro­fes­sional base­ball teams came here to “boil out the beer” in our fa­mous min­eral wa­ter and to get into shape. Through the years many oth­ers found that Hot Springs' ther­mal wa­ters, scenic walk­ing and hik­ing trails, beau­ti­ful lakes, and other attraction­s recharge body and mind.
