right here in Hot Springs! A few days ago, Ray & I took our two grandchildren to the museum, and we were blown away with great fun that we all shared!  I just bought our tickets to the Taste of the Holidays, determined to support this incredible museum. You might want to make a trip to Hot Springs, and join in the fun.  Over twenty vendors will be providing scrumptious treats, we’ll enjoy live music, and the museum staff will entertain with awesome science experiments!

The newly remodeled and updated museum features interactive, mind-boggling exhibits.After 2 hours, we still had not seen nor experienced all of the cool stuff. Quite memorable for my grandchildren was the drum set with head set, making lightning in the Tesla theatre, climbing the tree house, and discovering nature’s power to eliminate dead critters.  Fascinating! Note: grandkids or children not required for having fun at the museum!

You are invited to getaway to Hot Springs, and take in the many sights including the Mid-America Science Museum. We would love to welcome you to Lookout Point, and provide great hospitality with comfortable luxury on the shores of Lake Hamilton.  It’s a great time to come stay at our Hot Springs bed & breakfast!

Top 5 Ways to Stay Cool in Hot Springs

July 21st, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

With the “heat bubble” hovering over most of the U.S., Hot Springs is a pretty good place to have fun and stay cool. Here’s our top five suggestions:

1. Rent a boat, and head to Blakely Dam. The water temp drops to about 48 degrees, creating at least a 10 degree drop in air temperature. Really refreshing on hot summer days. Plus the water is so clear you can see the fish swimming. Try Marineland for boat rentals.

2. The Gangster Museum of America. Spend time indoors at this fun and quirky museum, exploring the unique, checkered history of Hot Springs.

3. Star gaze from the lakeside hammocks of Lookout Point. With a cool beverage and a breeze off the lake, you’ll definitely feel cooler.

4. Crystal Falls Water Park.

Water fun at Crystal Falls

With a lazy river, wave pool, and lots more water fun, Crystal Falls is a cool way to spend the day. Get discounted admission tickets from the inn, and there is no waiting in line for tickets, too.

5. Explore Mid-America Science Museum. More than 100 hands-on exhibits delight by kids and adults of all ages.

Keep Cool!
