Can You Dig It? A Chicks' Trip Has Endless Possibilities

September 19, 2022

Ladies, this is your time. And your kind of place.

When it’s time to unplug, unwind and reconnect, Chicks Dig French Lick Resort because there are endless ways to experience a girls’ getaway here. From a tee time to a tea time, every corner of the resort is yours to explore.

Ladies sitting by pool with Drinks

Chicks dig soaking up rays. Does it even count as a vacation until you’re lounging poolside? (Preferably with margarita in hand.) With the outdoor pools usually open mid March to late October, the water heated to 85 degrees and pools open 18 hours each day, you can max out on those sunny vibes. And fun fact: French Lick Springs Hotel has one family pool and another just for adults.

Chicks dig cold, hard cash. #1 priority on your packing checklist: that lucky outfit. From the nickel slots to the blackjack table, French Lick Casino literally has hundreds of different ways to test your luck. And whether or not you leave with a huge jackpot, you’ll all agree a girls’ night out definitely qualifies as #winning.

Chicks dig some “me” time. When a little self-care is in order, a spa day is just what the doctor ordered. So go ahead, get that heavenly Swedish massage you’ve had your heart set on. Or maybe a hydrafacial you never knew you needed. Just be sure to book your spa experience well in advance to ensure yourself some proper pampering.
Ladies Golfing at French Lick Resort
Chicks dig the long ball. A long drive off the tee, that is – because golf trips aren’t just for the guys anymore. Between the championship Donald Ross and Pete Dye Courses and the 9-hole Valley Links, there’s three unique courses to get your golf fix. (Even if you’re not a golfer, it’s worth stopping up at The Pete Dye Course to admire the 40-mile vistas.)

Chicks dig making memories together: Take a horseback ride together, then get dressed up and go to dinner together. Hit a Wine & Canvas session together, then take aim on the sporting clays range together. Variety is the spice of life, and around every corner is a resort adventure the whole crew will be laughing about and talking about for years to come.

Chicks dig the finer things in life. Pinkies up! Afternoon Tea is a must-do for a girls’ trip. (Cute outfits and matching hats not required, but certainly encouraged to fully engage in the spirit of elegance.) Sip on tea, nibble on mini sandwiches and treats, enjoy beautiful harp music, and truly feel like royalty.

Chicks dig cheers-ing together. Wine lovers, give this one a swirl: Did you know French Lick is located right in the middle of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail? There are nine local wineries that make for an ideal day trip or a convenient stop along the way. Make time to stop by French Lick Winery for a tasting (plus a few extra bottles to take home), and French Lick Resort’s free shuttle will even drop you off and pick you up at the winery.

Chicks dig bachelorette parties. Because what happens in French Lick .... stays in French Lick. Oh, and did we mention there's free shuttle service throughout the resort? Go ahead, let your hair down and indulge, because we'll give you a lift.

We'll also help you plan all those little details before your trip. Larger parties can go through our Group Sales Department, and smaller groups can work with our Experience Design Team for free, personalized planning.

Chicks dig … doing nothing at all. Maybe your vacation to-do list is blank. That’s cool, too. This is the perfect place to hit the pause button on life for a bit.

Sleep in. Order room service. And to wind down a you-do-you kind of day, savor the hushed ambiance of West Baden Springs Hotel together. A cold drink, good friends and great conversation are sometimes all a girl really needs, right?
