Imagine the calm, relaxing, zen-like feeling experienced while sitting in a hot tub. This marvel of modern technology is actually just a replica of the real thing: natural hot springs are not the exotic, out-of-reach destinations many believe they are. Mother Nature was pretty fair in her placement of these immensely enjoyable pools of naturally heated water, as there are hot springs sprinkled across the entire globe. Below is a short list of some United States hot spring destinations..
