Family Fun Things to Do at French Lick Springs Resort

You might be familiar with the gorgeous architecture at French Lick Springs Resort but they also have a lot for families to enjoy.

I’m sharing the top adventures with kids in French Lick, Indiana.

Our family kicked off spring break at French Lick Springs Resort in French Lick, Indiana.

This might seem like an unusual place for a spring break destination but I was pleasantly surprised to learn about all that the resort had to offer for families year round.

Here are a few highlights that families will enjoy.

Don’t let the gorgeous ascetics intimidate you. The atmosphere is really laid back.

Check out the Kids Club Activities

I will warn you that once your kids see the kids club area they will not want to do anything else.

There is something for all ages and interests. Kids can read, create art, play board games, create images with a green screen, play video games and also participate in the organized fun throughout the day.

Play a Round of FootGolf

Footgolf is a combination of golf and soccer. It’s played on a golf course and you use your feet to kick the soccer ball into a large hole instead of using golf clubs.

Our family had so much fun playing footgolf together.

Take an Architectural Tour

I LOVE architecture and the beauty of kids club is that you can drop off your kids to play if they are not interested in history which is a WIN/WIN!

The West Baden Springs Resort and French Lick Springs Resort both offer architectural tours.

During my visit, I took the West Baden Springs Resort tour which was extremely informative and gave me an opportunity to learn insight into details of the building that I might have overlooked otherwise.

Visit the “Eighth Wonder of the World”

The West Baden Springs Hotel atrium spans 200 ft and was once called “The Eighth Wonder of the World.”

I also wandered around the French Lick Resort to take in all of the detailed design.

You can also go horseback riding or play golf at West Baden Springs Resort

Unfortunately, we ran out of time because of so many great options to choose from.

Golf is also a huge draw to the resort which is why it was chosen for the 2015 Senior PGA Championship.

West Baden

French Lick Springs Resort is also located a short drive from the French Lick West Baden Museum and SHOTZ laser tag and mini golf.  You can also try the ATV tour at Wilstem Ranch which is located about 15 minutes away.

Enjoy Excellent Customer Service from Great Staff

How do I know? Because my son got sick during our visit and required housekeeping to attend to our room in the middle of the night.

The incident involved changing bedding and curtain panels. I was so relieved that the staff who came to our room that night were extremely understanding and gracious about the whole incident.
