What Bert Has To Say About Hot Springs Metro Area


Hot Springs is a spa and resort town at the base of the Ouachita Mountains southwest of Little Rock. The area boasts 47 natural hot springs as well as the boyhood home of Bill Clinton. Surrounding the unusual Hot Springs National Park are several resorts, some tacky tourist sprawl, and a few historic sites. Downtown is clean with a substantial historic district containing the historic Bathhouse Row preserved and repurposed by the National Park Service.
