Review of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas

Hot Springs Village, AR is NOT the same as Hot Spr
Star Rating - 4/25/2016
After reading the information that is supposed to be about Hot Springs Village, it is clear that the writer has confused the "Village" and the city of Hot Springs,(which is about 35 minutes south of Hot Springs Village). Hot Springs Village is the largest gated community in America with 9 golf courses and 11 lakes, tennis courts, natatorium, fitness center and over 22 churches in the community. The city of Hot Springs, on the other hand, is very "touristy" as stated. HSV is NOT touristy because only people that own/rent homes or own lots are permitted free access to the gated community. Hot Springs is great for shopping, sightseeing, with free concerts in the spring and summer, and the usual tourist attractions. The Village has its own beauty with 22 miles of hiking trails, farmers market in the Spring and Summer, and the list goes on and on. Many people come to the Village and see no need to travel too far beyond the gates. Others enjoy the opportunity to go to the BIG city (Little Rock) as well as smaller cities around the area. Arkansas has some of the best state parks in the US, pristine lakes and great fishing.

To be fair to the author, lots of people use the words Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village interchangeably. They couldn't be more different!
