We have fun in our great city year ‘round, but especially in the summertime. Since we have three lakes (Catherine, Hamilton and Ouachita) water sports is probably the number one activity guests enjoy during the summer. Every type of water sport imaginable is possible in our area. At our cozy Hot Springs inn we have regularly scheduled boat tours as well as private sunset tours. We also have a canoe (complimentary) and kayaks for rent. That just skims the surface of what Hot Springs has to offer our guests during the warm weather season.
We have more summer events than we can mention in our blog, but our 10 favorites are:
- “Enchanted Forest” An Art Installation by W. Gary Smith at Garvan Gardens from May through spring of 2017
- 5th Annual $86,000 Hot Springs Fishing Challenge May 1 – July 31 on Lakes Catherine and Hamilton
- Crystal Falls Water Park Annual Reopening at Magic Springs May 7 through the summer
- 3rd Annual Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival 6-9 p.m. May 21 at Hot Springs Convention Center
