VACATION TIME

Posted by Angela @ farragio on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 Under: travel


We just returned from a fun vacation in French Lick, Indiana. (I know, the name is kind of funny.) My husband and I honeymooned there 25 years ago so we thought we'd combine an anniversary trip and family vacation all into one.

We stayed at the French Lick Springs Hotel. Built back in 1901, the outside is somewhat sedated looking.....

...but the inside is full of charm and grandeur.

French Lick is famous for their natural sulfur springs known as "miracle waters" because of its medicinal qualities. This is the gazebo that houses the well on the hotel premises. (P. S. It's kind of stinky because of the sulfur.)

We took an excursion to Patoka Lake, a beautiful man-made lake about 30 minutes outside of French Lick.

Part of what makes it so beautiful is because building around the lake is restricted so you get natural views as far as the eye can see.

We rented bikes at the hotel and stopped by the neighboring West Baden Springs Hotel for cocktails. The size and beauty of the atrium-style hotel is amazing.

We also ventured into Paoli, Indiana. I love old courthouses and theirs didn't disappoint.
