Known for its healing mineral spring water, the town of Hot Springs, NC has been a resort destination for almost 200 years!
Just 40 minutes outside of Asheville, Hot Springs sits right in the midst of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Pisgah National Forest, and the French Broad River.
When it comes to outdoor adventure, Hot Springs has it all! Not only does the Appalachian Trail run right through town, you can also find whitewater rafting, tubing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and more. Or a scenic drive for those less adventurous.
The historic town is filled with quaint shops and restaurants to check out, and at the end of the day, enjoy a relaxing and romantic soak in the hot mineral springs the town prides itself in.
Heated deep within the earth, the 103-degree crystal-clear carbonated waters are said to have curative qualities that will relax and rejuvenate you.
Get out in nature for a stroll or go on a hike to Lover’s Leap, along the Laurel River. Another favorite hike is 5000-foot high Max Patch with its incredible 360-degree views.
