July is Parks & Recreation Month

This month, make it a goal to go outside and walk around your local city park. Looking to take advantage of a local national park? Go to Hot Springs! Hot Springs National Park is a unique combination of urban and natural landscapes that was established all the way back in 1832. The hot springs themselves are in the area known as Bathhouse Row in the heart of downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas, and visitors can still take a traditional bath in several of the bathhouses. You could also hike on 26 miles of trails, camp near Gulpha Creek, or stroll the historic district and enjoy drinking from the water fountains that are fed by the natural springs.
