Welcome to the Southern Appalachians

Hidden away in the North Carolina mountains, Hot Springs is known for its mineral rich thermal waters.

If you’d rather soak under the stars, some Hot Springs vacation rentals feature private outdoor tubs. Thanks to its riverside location, Hot Springs has a big focus on water sports. Think kayaking, canoeing, and even white-water rafting. The town is also a mecca for hikers, with the iconic Appalachian Trail running right through the town center.
