12 American Hot Springs Worth A Dip (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 11/23/10 08:11 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:15 PM ET

Geology may be able to explain thermal springs, but we still like to believe there's a magical element at work. Slipping into steamy water with stones as your bathtub and sky as your ceiling is just that wonderfully surreal.

While there are stunning springs to take a dip in worldwide, we've focused on all the thermal goodness we have right here in the USA. East Coasters take note: Our country's geologic distribution does mean that most hot springs are out west, but you've been meaning to set off on that epic road trip anyways, right?

With hundreds and hundreds of American thermal springs, we think it's safe to say we've left off a few. What are your favorite hot springs in the USA? Send us your photos and thoughts!
