5 Ways to Beat the Heat at French Lick Resort

French Lick Resort is packed with ways to stay cool this summer. See how many of these "cool" activities you can check out during your stay!

1. Not 1, not 2, but 4 pools!
With an indoor pool, outdoor pool, and hot tub at both French Lick Springs and West Baden Springs Hotels, there is plenty of space to lay out your bea
ch towels and splash around. And the pools are located next to each other, making for an easy move if you find yourself catching a few too many rays. Of course it wouldn’t be a complete experience without a snack nearby. Spring No. 8 Deli is just outside the French Lick Springs Hotel pool complex for a refreshing drink or quick bite. Need sunscreen or some shades? French Lick Mercantile Co. has you covered. The pools are perfect for spending a few hours or a whole day lounging around, especially when being active is the last thing on your mind.

2. Scoops Ice Cream
A resort favorite, Scoops has been keeping guests happy for many a summer. With delicious flavors like chocolate, French vanilla, mint chocolate chip and cookies and cream, there’s sure to be a taste to satisfy every sweet tooth. Stay cool with a scoop (or two)! You can get all the ice cream your heart desires at The Mercantile at the French Lick Springs Hotel and Xanadu at the West Baden Springs Hotel. Take your ice cream outside and "rock" your worries away on the veranda at both hotels. 

3. Drinks at Power Plant Bar & Grill
The large electrical switchboard that covers the wall of this eatery is no longer giving off heat, but the bar is filled with refreshing drinks. The pub is named for the switchboard that used to supply electricity for the French Lick Springs Hotel. Offering a full array of food and delicious cool drinks. On a hot summer day, try the mojito or a cool old fashioned.

4. Kidsfest Programming
If you're taking your summer vacation with the kiddos, be sure to take some time to check out Kidsfest--French Lick Resort's very own hangout for kids. Whether it's painting, Wii games or cooking or one of our "Around the World" summer-themed activities, there is something to do all the time in our Kidsfest lodge. Helpful tip: the Kidsfest lodge is also where you rent bikes and surrey carts!

5. Bowling and Arcade
You don't have to leave the resort to go bowling with your family! Connected to the bowling alley is the arcade and Pluto's Pizzeria--all open until late night. Be sure to play Cosmic Bowling on Wednesday nights 5pm-11pm!
