Description
Hot Springs is a year-round health and pleasure resort adjacent to Hot Springs National Park. The Hot Springs region is well-known for its three nearby lakes— Lake Hamilton, Lake Ouachita and Lake Catherine—and for being rich in quartz crystals of superior hardness and brilliance; the finest are in the veins of Crystal Mountain. Baseball enthusiasts can follow the Hot Springs Baseball Trail, a 26-marker walking and driving trail that denotes the history of the sport.
The city sponsors a variety of events, including the Miss Arkansas Pageant in July and the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival in October. In mid-April, Arkansas Derby Day takes place at Oaklawn Park as part of its thoroughbred racing season, January through mid-April; phone (800) 625-5296.
