Four Great Gift Giving Ideas

Tis the season when the stores are crowded, the lines are long and the gift lists are vague. What’s a shopper to do? If you’re wanting to alleviate the stress and accentuate the pleasure – check out these four ideas that will make gift-giving a treat.

Step Inside History
French Lick Springs Hotel
Indiana Landmarks is about more than just saving historic structures. This organization connects people with our Hoosier heritage – all across the state. Give a gift membership that offers tour and program discounts, savings on merchandise, free use of the information center and a subscription to Indiana Preservation magazine.  It’s the perfect gift for the history buff on your list.

All Aboard for Adventure
Train lover on your gift list? Get them a ticket to ride on The French Lick Scenic Railway. The journey encompasses an 18-mile round-trip ride through parts of the Hoosier National Forest and the 2,200-foot Burton Tunnel. The scenic train excursion lasts almost 2 hours and is fun for the entire family. Check out the special event train trips offered throughout the year.

Hit the Slopes
Snow Tubing
Whether it’s skiing, snowboarding or snow tubing, Paoli Peaks offers an exciting day on the slopes for everyone – beginners, intermediates and advanced. With 15 ski trails, a cozy ski lodge, pizzeria restaurant and Pro Shop, you’ll enjoy hitting the powder without leaving Southern Indiana. Snow passes are available for use December through March.

Give a Memory
West Baden Springs Hotel
The French Lick Resort Gift Card offers a resort full of fun! You can select from your choice of French Lick Springs Hotel and West Baden Springs Hotel cards; perfect for shopping, dining and room stays. Or your favorite golfer might enjoy a gift card for the Pete Dye, Donald Ross or Valley Links Golf Course. A spa card proffers the perfect tranquil experience at either hotel. And don’t forget the kids with a Kid’s Party Fest gift card.  Visit our Gift Card web page and select the desired value for the card that never expires.
