Now, the National Park owns the rights to the water, and they have two Bathhouses still in operation for the public, and they've given the rights to some of the hotels in town as well. There are a number of springs through out the mountain that surrounds Hot Springs, they're all locked and sealed. They're all at around 147degrees.
The city itself has some interesting stores, fun to shop in, plus they have excellent food. We ate at Rolando's and the waitress we spoke with their, Rhonda, was wonderful. Actually, the food there was good enough to be a DDD. The food was Ecuadorian food, very good.. Similar to Mexican, with a touch difference. We both loved our food there. We are going to email the DDD folks upon our return and suggest the check them out!

There are trails everywhere throughout Hot Springs. If you aren't into the trails, they have a bus service from every parking spot, which circles every 30mins, for free. The bus driver gives you a tour of what to do and what you are driving by. Very friendly, proud, and helpful.
We'd love to come back to Hot Springs Arkansas with friends, and enjoy their various live music venues too!
Tomorrow we start our way north, first night outside of Memphis, with a stop at an excellent DDD in Memphis, in Graceland for some BBQ! Then camping in the woods just north of Memphis.
That's if for now! (Jerry hasn't edited this yet.. he will!)
