    Bit to Do

    Have the holidays lost their magic for you? Do you find yourself obsessing over presents, stressed about taking the time off work, too frazzled to cook or decorate? Pack up the kids and take the short (about an hour) drive from Louisville to French Lick Resort! Here are five ways to celebrate the season with French Lick:

    1. Marvel at the (very) decked halls!

    French Lick’s 50 Days of Lights started November 20 and will run through January 10.  The French Lick Springs Hotel and The West Baden Springs Hotel are transformed into a holiday wonderland, with everything from massive, lit Christmas trees to stacks of poinsettia in the hotel lobby. Everywhere you look there are lights, gilded leaves, fluffy snow— even animatronic elves. There are plenty of family photo ops through the Victorian village or by the seven-foot-tall gingerbread house

    2. Get on the nice list: hang out with Santa!

    The big guy himself (not to mention his missus) will be hanging out at French Lick during the holiday season. Children and families can visit Santa, get photos and even enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with the jolly old elf himself; and Mrs. Claus will be hosting story time and cookie decorating. Click here for a full schedule of Santa-related events at French Lick Resort! 

    3. Sing along to the Christmas carols.

    Get in the true spirit of the season and enjoy a wide variety of holiday music at French Lick Resort! Holiday choirs will be performing at both hotels through the Christmas season. Click here to find the music!

    4. Do your holiday shopping in style.

    Wondering what to get the person on your list who already has everything? What about a gift certificate to French Lick Resort’s nationally acclaimed spa—nothing says “Merry Christmas!” like a Pluto bath and manicure. You can purchase spa packages, golf packages, restaurant gift certificates, hotel packages, or treat your loved ones with a gift certificate to one of French Lick and West Baden’s many dining options. You can also shop without leaving the resort! 

    5. De-stress post-holiday.

    If your December is just too busy, don’t worry! The lights and decorations will be up at French Lick Resort through January 10, and French Lick is hosting a Family Winter Fest from December 26 – 31. The festival will have indoor activities and recreation for families and children from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday through Wednesday and until 5 p.m. on December 31. French Lick and West Baden are also planning parties for New Year’s Eve, so mark your calendar and get ready to ring in 2016 in style!
    While snapping photos around French Lick Resort this holiday season, tag them with #FLRholidays on French Lick’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win an overnight stay and carriage ride.

    Happy Holidays!
