1. Take the Waters: Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas
Sure, warm baths are great and mineral water is nice, but you haven’t lived until you’ve tried a warm bath full of mineral water. At Quapaw Baths and Spa, you can frolic in a thermal pool or shvitz your heart out in the grottolike "steam cave"; both feature therapeutic water pumped from the park's famed springs.
