SPRINGS BED & BREAKFASTS:
|Hot Springs is the 10th
most populous city in the U.S. state of Arkansas, the county seat of Garland
County, and the principal city of the Hot Springs Metropolitan Statistical
Area encompassing all of Garland County.
Springs is traditionally best known for the natural spring water that gives
it its name, flowing out of the ground at a temperature of 147 degrees
Fahrenheit (64 degrees C). Hot Springs National Park is the oldest federal
reserve in the USA, and the tourist trade brought by the famous springs
make it a very successful spa town.
The city takes its name from
the natural thermal water that flows from 47 springs on the western slope
of Hot Springs Mountain in the historic downtown district of the city.
About a million gallons of 143-degree water flow from the springs each
day. The rate of flow is not affected by fluctuations in the rainfall in
the area. Studies by National Park Service scientists have determined through
carbon dating that the water that reaches the surface in Hot Springs fell
as rainfall in an as-yet undetermined watershed 4,000 years earlier. The
water percolates very slowly down through the earth’s surface until it
reaches superheated areas deep in the crust and then rushes rapidly to
the surface to emerge from the 47 hot springs.
A small channel of hot spring
water known as Hot Springs Creek runs under ground from an area near Park
Avenue to Bath House Row.
