Hot Springs is a popular vacation spot in the Ouachita Mountains, thanks to its natural thermal spas and beautiful national park, and it’s also got a colorful history. In between relaxing soaks, trace the steps of gangster Al Capone at the famous Arlington Hotel, or visit Whittington Park, the site of Babe Ruth’s first 500-plus-yard home run. Then, hop in your rental car in Hot Springs and see the rest of the Natural State.
There is limited service directly to Hot Springs Municipal Airport from Dallas and Memphis, but most flights to Hot Springs will land at Little Rock’s Clinton National Airport (LIT), 55 miles east of central Hot Springs. Little Rock has lots to offer beyond the airport, too—it’s a great day trip in your Hot Springs car rental. Start at the River Market with a gourmet Ozarks-blend coffee as you watch a local artist paint the waterfront. Once you’re in the groove, dig into history at the Clinton Presidential Library and the Historic Arkansas Museum, or head to Vogel-Schwartz Sculpture Garden to admire unique, award-winning sculptures. Got the whole family in tow? Our roomy vans make it easy to get the whole gang from spa retreat to big-city life and back again in time for dinner at your Hot Springs hotel.
