Hot tubs are traditionally costly can often take up a ton of space that isn’t there to begin with. That’s where inflatable hot tubs like the SaluSpa from Bestway come in, providing you a relatively cheap alternative to a hot tub and something that only temporarily takes up space. If you’ve been thinking of grabbing one lately, Amazon has a great deal that discounts the SaluSpa down to $480 from $600, an impressive $120 discount that makes it even more enticing to own.

Probably one of the best parts of the SaluSpa is that it really doesn’t require much setup at all, as it doesn’t have a frame and can be inflated with its pump, making it perfect for those who don’t have the time to do it manually. The quick setup also means that you don’t necessarily have to make a whole day of it and can decide on a whim to set it up and take it apart if you’d like. But if you prefer to keep it up for a longer period of time, it comes with a cover for safety, and to help keep the water warm.

Speaking of keeping the water warm, the SaluSpa has a cool — no pun intended — feature that allows you to automate the spa’s temperature up to 72 hours beforehand, so you can always have it ready and going for when you come home. You can also control the temperature from inside the tub, which can go all the way up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit — that’s pretty hot, so be careful! You should also be happy to note that it has 120 bubble jets, so you’re not going to be left wanting for bubbles or soothing jets of water.

While it’s certainly great to have a traditional hot tub or easy access to some of the best hot springs around the globe, sometimes inflatable ones are just a better option, given their portability and ease of use. What’s even better is that they don’t cost an arm and a leg, and the SaluSpa’s discount on Amazon, which brings it down to just $480, makes the value proposition a whole load better. Of course, if you want something a bit bigger, we also have a list of some of the best above-ground swimming pools to buy.

You’ll soon be able to fish year-round at Yellowstone National Park
It's great news for anglers at a time when the National Park Service is restricting recreational access.

Thanks to a boom in U.S. National Park visitation numbers, the National Park Service has been clamping down on park access for the last few years. Reservations and restricted entry times are fast becoming the norm at many of our best National Parks. So, it's great news when the NPS announces any type of expanded access, like Yellowstone's relaxed fishing guidelines beginning later this year.
Get the full details on Yellowstone National Park's expanded fishing guidelines

In an official news release published last week, the National Park Service announced that "beginning Nov. 1, 2024, Yellowstone National Park will expand fishing access by allowing for year-round fishing opportunities at two locations in the park." The catch, if you can call it that, is that this will only include two specific locations. The first is along the Madison River, specifically from the state border of Wyoming and Montana, downstream to the park boundary abutting the West Entrance near the town of West Yellowstone, Montana. The second is the Gardner River, beginning at Osprey Falls down to its confluence with the Yellowstone River near the park's North Entrance in Gardiner, Montana.

So, anything you can do to make the space feel a little roomier feels like a luxury. Super Pacific's clever CloudCap does just that by converting the unused space on your camper van's roof into a legit two-person "bedroom" with a view.

The Grand Canyon National Park has announced the much-anticipated reopening of Havasupai Gardens Campground, Bright Angel Trail, and Tonto Trail, set for April 15, 2024. This marks a celebratory moment for hiking enthusiasts and nature lovers, as one of the most renowned trails in the park becomes accessible once again after a temporary closure.

These closures began way back in December 2023 due to the Transcanyon Waterline project at the Grand Canyon National Park. This project involved extensive construction activities aimed at upgrading and replacing the water distribution lines in the park. The work included the replacement of water distribution lines throughout the Havasupai Gardens area and at the 1.5 and 3-mile rest houses, located along the Bright Angel Trail.
