Take a hop, skip, and a spring toward fun in Hot Springs

Tucked under the southern edge of the Black Hills, Hot Springs was once prized by Cheyenne and Sioux tribes who appreciated the warm water bubbling up from the canyon and feeding Fall River, which runs right through town. European settlers reimagined the city as a frontier health spa, and today, with six thermal springs still gurgling through town, it still feels like the right place to rest your weary bones. When you're well-soaked, it's time to enjoy the city's historic architecture and the area's hiking trails and campsites.

Things to do

Learn about pleistocene fossils and plucky pioneers

You don't have to visit a spa in Hot Springs, but don't be surprised if you're called a wet blanket. Evans Plunge is the largest and combines spa-like services with water slides and kiddie pools, all supplied with fresh spring water that's permanently 87¡F. The Fall River Pioneer Museum is the perfect place to learn about local history, with artifacts, art, and handcrafted tools displayed in a 19th-century sandstone schoolhouse. Go even further back in time at the Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, a museum and active paleontological excavation site.

Activities

Swim, splash, and slurp _ this water is at your service

If you're new to the city, you'll want to start with a stroll through the two downtown parks that hug Fall River. Their walking paths and pedestrian bridges will lead you to the fresh water at Kidney Springs, a good place to fill up your empty water jugs. Then enjoy a day of pampering or play at one of the city's spas or waterparks. For a little more outdoor adventure, Angostura State Recreation Area is just a few miles south of your Hot Springs vacation rental and offers campsites, a crystal-clear lake, and perfect fishing and swimming spots.

Weather

Warm summers and winters tailor-made for a hot spring

Your Hot Springs vacation rental will be set in a stunning landscape, no matter what the time of year. It's cool, semi-arid climate means rain is rare and winters are chilly. Spring is the rainiest season, so be prepared for occasional showers or thunderstorms. Summers are warm and lovely, especially in the mornings. Afternoons are hot but rarely hit temps above 90¡F. Fall is crisp and clear, and winter is cold but less bitter than what you might face at higher elevations in the Black Hills. Expect snowfalls in the inches, not the yards.

Natural features

Let splendid wild horses stampede into your heart

Within a short drive of your Hot Springs vacation rental you'll find South Dakota's most dramatic sights. To the north is Custer State Park, 71,000 acres of terrain where bighorn sheep, antelope, and wild turkeys run free. If that's not enough to get your heart racing, look for the roaming herd of 1,300 bison. South of Custer is Wind Cave National Park, where you can explore one of the longest caves in the world, and a bit further south is the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, a haven for beautiful beasts and the humans who love them.
