10 Romantic Things to do at French Lick Resort

By Joy Neighbors
Here’s a Top Ten list that could come in handy when celebrating Sweetest Day this Saturday, but you really don't have to wait for a special occasion. At French Lick Resort, we can make your stay as sweet as you want, any time. Here’s how.

1) Flowers in Your Room
Impress your special someone with a fresh bouquet of flowers. Our talented staff can create a beautiful floral arrangement and deliver it to your door at the appropriate time or have it in the room when you arrive.

2)   Take a Hike
We have five miles of scenic trails to stroll together hand-in-hand; most are rated “easy.” Bring the binoculars to scout for birds, owls and deer, which are plentiful in the valley. When you’re ready to return to civilization go directly to #3.

3)   Couples Massages
Plan some “together time” at one of our luxurious spas. Choose from a variety of massage therapies and share the experience. Choices include aromatherapy, sacred stone and Swedish massages.

4)   Romantic Dinner for Two
Several resort restaurants offer exceptional meals served in luxurious surroundings. At French Lick Springs Hotel, 1875: The Steakhouse is one of the finest dining establishments in the state. For a bit more casual vibe, take your honey to the Power Plant Bar & Grill for tempting food and live music on the weekends. 

At West Baden Springs Hotel, it's the ultimate dining experience at Table One. At this private chef’s table, you can watch as your meal is prepared. But with the flip of a switch, your table becomes secluded for an intimate dinner. Sinclair’s Restaurant exudes timeless elegance while Ballard’s in the Atrium offers a breath-taking dining experience under the dome.

5)   Carriage Ride
Plan a romantic carriage ride for two after dinner. Select from one of our scenic routes and settle in for an enjoyable 25-minute trip around the grounds.

6)   Listen to Live Music
West Baden Springs Hotel offers live music five nights a week; Wednesday through Sunday. Enjoy listening to piano, harp, light pop and sultry late night jazz. Craving some romantic together-time? Take a romantic stroll through our gardens.

7)   In-Room Dining
It doesn’t matter if you’d like a late night snack or a relaxed breakfast in bed, our staff will be more than happy to prepare your meal any way and any time you want it.

8)   Hit the Alley
Ever go bowling on a date? Here’s a chance to relive those memories at Pluto’s Alley. With six lanes available and fresh, hot pizza just around the corner, (not to mention adult libations), you can “spare” some time to strike out together.

9)   Get Your Game On
Deal yourself in for fun at our 51,000-square-foot Vegas-style casino with 37 live-dealer tables, a high-limit gaming area, slots, video poker and a VIP lounge.
Enjoy live casino entertainment each weekend.

10)  Ride the Trolley
Bring your romantic stay to close by riding the "World's Shortest Trolley Line." The restored trolley provides a romantic one-mile journey between the two resort hotels. And remember, now's the perfect time to make your reservations for that next romantic get-away.
