Hot Springs, Arkansas & Hot Springs National Park Weekend Trip

Jump to last reply

I am planning a short trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas for about two days.

My ideal trip would be:
Friday night (get in around 9:00) - meet friends at a bar or restaurant; all crash at a hotel for one night
Saturday - wake up early, get into the national park, hike, adventure, wear ourselves out all day. Grab Mexican food for dinner that night, and camp out somewhere on Saturday night.
Sunday - wake up early, all have a good breakfast, and head home.

So my main questions are:
- advice on restaurant/bar for Friday night; good Mexican restaurant for Saturday night; good breakfast spot for Sunday
- the best day hike/adventure in the National Park (none of us have ever been to Hot Springs National Park, so any advice is great & much appreciated!)
- advice on camping in this area - should we camp in the National Park? Is there a good spot somewhere outside the park, so that we could leave the park for dinner and stay out that night?

Like I said, any advice would be great! Thanks so much!
