If you live in Southern Idaho and I ask about hot springs, you should immediately think of the many great options in Hagerman. There are three great spots within a short distance of each other - Miracle, Thousand Springs, and Banbury Hot Springs. I have a hard time believing that we are the only ones who know this, but maybe Hagerman is a well kept Idaho secret?

Only in Your State recently wrote about the 8 best Hot Springs in Idaho and the Magic Valley got no love at all. In fact, not only did Hagerman get dissed and left off the list, but my favorite spot in Pine didn't get a mention either.

I've never been to any of the Hot Springs on their list except Lava when I was a kid. It was cool, but I don't think it's better that what we have right here in our backyard.
