5 Things to Do in Hot Springs, Arkansas

If the rush-rush of big city life isn’t your idea of a good vacation, you’ll love Hot Springs, Arkansas. Nestled in the mountains in west Arkansas, this town has plenty of culture, history, and entertaining things to do. I happened to have grown up in Hot Springs and visit every few years, but this trip I played tourist so that I could see the town through your eyes. I think you’ll like what I saw!

I’m a fan of old-school tourist attractions, and believe me: the Josephine Tussaud Wax Museum delivers. I’ve been visiting this throwback since I was little (and it opened in 1971) and it’s hardly changed in the decades since.

The wax figures lean toward more historic celebrities like Clark Gable and Mae West, though President Obama is a more recent addition. If you’re up for a few chills, don’t take the detour away from the Chamber of Horrors (where you are greeted by Alfred Hitchcock). You’ll warm back up by the time you enter the World of Make Believe, where Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland have been bringing smiles to children for ages. If You Go
