Hot Springs National Park surrounds the north end of the city of Hot Springs. The town built up around the hot springs with the result that the springs are now in the middle of the downtown area.
The city has a large parking garage on Exchange Street, one block west of the visitor center and a metered lot one block south of the visitor center. There is also parking along Central Avenue across the street from the Visitor Center.
The city of Hot Springs has a bus system, Intracity Transit, that has routes through the major streets in town.
