- Which hot spring will you hit first?
There is always something to be discovered in and around our city. Living in a place with such an abundance of nature surrounding us, it comes as no surprise that within driving distance, we can find a ton of hot springs, pools, and spas.
There is something extremely soothing about soaking away your sorrows while sitting in a hot spring. Not to mention, they are super beneficial when it comes to easing body aches — an added bonus.
Throughout the upcoming chilly winter months, it would be nice to be able to take part in an outdoor activity that doesn’t involve wearing a lot of clothing. And going into hot springs only requires a bathing suit and the will to get out of your house and go on an adventure. This is a great way to warm up while also taking in the views of the beauty around you.
