Hot Springs, Arkansas: Hot Springs Mountain Tower

If you are standing on top of Hot Springs Mountain during a rain storm, the water won't go away. You'll be able to drink it sometime past the year 6000.

It's a bit of a drive to get there. You can reach the road by going down Fountain Street, near Central Ave. where the Arlington Hotel is on the corner. The road up features plenty of switchbacks, but at least it's one way.

Finally, when you reach the top, you pay some money and take the elevator to the top and see Hot Springs from above. The view is quite nice - it goes for miles - and you certainly do see a lot of trees. The picture gives you an idea of what you'll see.

By the way, there are two levels on the top of the tower - one outside for views, the other inside for informational displays. There's even a video about Hot Springs' finest, Bill Clinton. The bottom of the tower has a small gift shop.

Happily, the road back down the mountain is a much more direct and easy drive.
