Hot Springs, Arkansas

From Academic Kids

Hot Springs is a city located in Garland County, Arkansas in the United States of America. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 35,750.

Hot Springs is traditionally best known for the natural spring water that gives it its name, flowing out of the ground at a very high 147 degrees fahrenheit. The tourist trade that this brought made it a very successful spa town. However, it is now also noted as the boyhood home of President William Jefferson Clinton. It is a sister city of Hanamaki, Iwate, Japan.

Location of Hot Springs, Arkansas

Hot Springs is located at 34°29'50" North, 93°3'19" West (34.497138, -93.055393)Template:GR.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 85.5 km² (33.0 mi²). 85.2 km² (32.9 mi²) of it is land and 0.3 km² (0.1 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 0.36% water. Hot Springs is now a Metropolitan Statistical Area. For now, the MSA is only Garland County, with a 2003 estimated population of 93,000. The population of Hot Springs is very misleading. While its official population is only about 36,000, there are an additional 45,000 residents that surround the city that just aren't in the city limits. When you add 45,000 to the official 36,000, you get a more accurate picture of Hot Springs. When you add all of the tourists and the traffic, it appears to be very much more than a little city of 36,000.
