One Tank Trip Idea: Spring Break at French Lick Resort

Whether its memories of a cramped car with annoying siblings or the 8mm “movie version” of a loving family bonding over iconic family vacations, no one can deny the worst part of road trips were the long hours in the car.

With its endless array of activities, the southern Indiana destination’s version of spring break could be described as a family camp experience (minus the tents). There are old school yard games like capture the flag and dodgeball; all ages activities such as family karaoke, renegade bowling and tricky golf as well as physical challenges like an obstacle course and even a duathlon (bikes provided). 
Mom & Me Tea
 How cool would it be to take your child to their first “grown-up” tea party and one they will never forget in of the most surreal locations? Mom & Me Teas are held every Wednesday underneath the world-famous West Baden Springs Hotel dome. New this year, Cookies & Canvas allows moms and dads to work side-by-side with their budding Picasso and the whole family will love the entertaining magic of Michael Principato.

Situated in the heart of the Hoosier National Forest, the resort is a great getaway for outdoor enthusiasts.  An 8-mile trail system features areas for hikers and mountain bikers alike. Guests can also explore the resort’s 3,000 acres by hitching a ride on one of our three dozen horses on property. Nearby Patoka Lake and area caves offer plenty of recreational opportunities as well.

We realize that mom and dad may need some alone time too. Three championship golf courses and two world-class spas provide plenty of opportunities to relax and re-charge. By signing up for the supervised KidsFest activities, held daily in the lodge, parents can enjoy themselves while their little ones are safely supervised and having fun.

Spring Break at French Lick Resort runs from March 11 to April 11, 2015. A complete schedule is available on the website
