Hot Springs National Park KOA

I am excited that we are here , on our way to Texas (Grapevine) for Christmas.  This week is a bit chill and exploration while Brad works and we get “caught up”!

We did explore Bathhouse row and that area and were happy to pick up some gifts as we explored!

“I think recharging is important, absolutely. Every now and then, you need maybe a couple of weeks to just chill out and let your emotions balance themselves out a little bit.” – Malin Akerman

⇐ Better shot of how pretty our full site is.  As noted it was tough to park but, Brad did & it was worth it! 

We arrived here on Friday, December 1st.  Our site is beautiful (thank goodness that Brad is good at backing into lots!).  We got to walk around the park this afternoon after spending some time in town.  The park is very “hilly” and we are still quite happy with this lot and its location.  


Bathhouse Row – Exploration

“Hot Springs National Park has a rich cultural past. The grand architecture of our historic bathhouses is equally matched by the natural curiosities that have been drawing people here for hundreds of years.” – From National Park Website.  

And then we shopped across the street and especially liked the Downtowner Marketplace!  And the newly opened Art Studio that was upstairs in one area and had several different artists!!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas!!

We are so happy that we got to do this tour of Christmas Lights at the Garvan Woodland Gardens!  I had read about it when looking into the area so we decided to check it out!  It was nice to have an evening activity since Brad is still working. 

I hope my pictures show a bit of the beauty and if you are in the area it is a great event for ALL Ages and the people working this were fabulous!  And the Hot Chocolate at the end made it PERFECT!!!

 Onto Anthony Chapel….

Hot Springs Mural Art

It was a Great Visit!!

This is one of those times that I feel blessed we were able to visit Hot Springs, made me realize how much I like to learn the history of an area and this one has a lot.  I may be back to explore and find more Mural Art and History!
