There’s Nowhere In The World Quite Like This Arkansas Village

You may know about Hot Springs Village, but did you know it’s the largest gated community in the United States? With more than 26,000 acres of wooded land, Hot Springs Village is positively huge. It’s so huge it actually spills into two counties and is considered part of two metropolitan statistical areas. The population of Hot Springs Village isn’t really all that huge. With only 12,807 people it’s about a medium-sized town by Arkansas standards. Plus, you never feel like you’re crowded there, because of the nature all around. One thing is for sure: you’ll never run out of things to do there.

Hot Springs Village is located just 20 minutes from Hot Springs National Park and 45 minutes from Little Rock. To see it on a map, click here.
