With the rainy weather and (relatively) cold temperatures hitting Southern California lately, maybe you’re thinking it’s time to stuff a swimsuit in your backpack and head out toward some hot springs. But maybe you don’t know where any good springs are.

Fear not! The internet is here to help!

The helpful folks at NOAA have a clickable map of all the thermal springs in the United States. The interface is a bit Windows 3.1-y, and it won’t necessarily tell you how to get to each hot spring — or whether they’re accessible at all — but it will spit out a ton of other information, like latitude and longitude, USGS quadrangle, and even average water temperature.

The Southwest is covered with the things, so get out there and enjoy ’em during these cold months.
