Hot Springs – New Years Soak, Arkansas

— Welcome to this week’s Episode of AudioTrek … Hot Spring Pools in Hot Springs Arkansas.
In the downtown district of Hot Springs, is a park right at the base of a hill. There, two connected hot spring pools are filled directly from springs in the hillside. The upper pool is VERY hot as the water is directly from the ground. The second pool is a little lower and as the water cascades over an opening into it, the water cools slightly, and the water there is a little more inviting.
All along the main street are several buildings that were originally built as “Bath Houses” and the architecture is stunning and grand… not at all what I was expecting. I also didn’t realize that back in the 1930’s, Hot Springs was the relaxing playground of several prominent mobsters… Al Capone, Frank Costello, Bugs Moran, Lucky Luciano, and others. Now, I had no idea! But after visiting Hot Springs, I can see why.
So, enjoy these soothing sounds of the hot springs as you imagine yourself soaking in these pools and starting the new year energized!
