Spring Fling in Arkansas
Little Rock & Hot Springs
Three days/two nights OR Four days / three nights
Calling all travelers for a delightful, colorful springtime trip through the hills of Arkansas.
Hot Springs takes its name from the natural thermal water that flows from numerous springs on the western slope of Hot Springs Mountain in the historic downtown district of the city. About a million gallons of 143° water flow from the springs each day.
Little Rock derives its name from a small rock formation on the south bank of the Arkansas River called la Petite Roche (“the little rock”), which was used by early river traffic as a landmark and became a well-known river crossing.
