Molly and Selena: We love blogging about cheap finds on the road (remember that dinner-movie combo in Pensacola?), which is why we have to give a serious shout out to Hot Springs, AR.

The former gangster hangout earned fame for its mineral spring water, which bubbles from the Ouchita Mountains at 147 degrees. Naturally, a spa community built up around the waters. Although many of the elegant old bathhouses on the main drag have shut down, a few still offer traditional bathing packages.

We chose Buckstaff Baths, a local favorite and the oldest continually operating house in town. Its traditional package includes four hot water treatments and a 20-minute massage for a grand total of…$50, a.k.a. the cost of a pedicure in most major city day spas.

Of course, we indulged. And we’ve got to say, it was one of those days that made us think, “Wow, we have one of the best jobs in the world.”
