Hot Springs' oldest tourist attraction (so it claims) is Arkansas Alligator Farm, a petting zoo right around the corner from downtown. It's not your ordinary petting zoo. Aside from goats, deer, emu, and other pet-ables, there are wolves, wild turkeys, mountain lions, monkeys, foxes, and (of course) alligators. This fine, dingy piece of Spa City is worth a visit. Ask your guide, and he'll let you hold a baby gator.
