How many natural hot springs in the U.S. are there?
We suppose this might have a lot to do with which kind of natural springs you’re looking for! The United States is home to 1,161 known thermal springs, which are hot springs heated by geothermal heat (heat within the Earth). Then there are mineral springs, natural springs, etc., and there are thousands of each of those, too. The state that has the most natural hot springs might surprise you! It’s not Wyoming, Alaska, or Colorado (the most commonly guessed states) - it’s Nevada! Home to more than 300 amazing springs, Nevada easily takes the first-place hot springs ribbon. Colorado is home to 93 natural springs, Alaska is home to more than 20, and Wyoming is home to 173 (some of which are WAY too hot or acidic for soaking). There are natural hot springs in all 50 states, though obviously, some have many more than others, which might just have one or two. Check out this list of 47 amazing hot springs in Arkansas!

Winter is a beautiful time of year for those who enjoy crisp, cold air and beautiful, snowy landscapes.
