Spring Break

You don’t have to travel miles and miles over spring break to experience thrills and chills. Simplify the experience this year and get away closer to home at French Lick Resort. Take advantage of our Resort Credit Package and earn credits to use toward bowling, horseback riding, FootGolf or other activities you’d like to build your own spring break adventure.

Spring Into The Wild Logo

Our KidsFest Lodge comes alive with “Spring Into the Wild” supervised activities March 8 through April 7. Safari-themed crafts, games and scavenger hunts are all part of the daily itinerary, and the “Born to be Wild” shows on Saturdays offer the chance to see exotic animals up close.


Activity Guide

Grizzly Bear Encounter

For another wild experience, head to nearby Wilstem Ranch to see and interact with some of the exotic creatures that call this 1,100-acre ranch home. From alpacas to zebras, there’s more than six dozen different animals at Wilstem and unique encounters to choose from. Buddy up with the kangaroos in the “Roos and Crew” encounter, or give an elephant a bath when the African elephants return to Wilstem in mid-March.


Also, did you know Wilstem is the only place for hundreds of miles where you can see brown bears in a natural habitat? The newly opened grizzly encounter is a truly unique opportunity to watch bear brothers Bob and Screech wrestle, eat and play as they interact with their handler. Watch and read more about this one-of-a-kind grizzly experience.

Spring break is also the time to splurge on some special treats. Kids can test their artistic skills at Cookies & Canvas or Cupcake Decorating. Or, sit down to Mommy & Me Tea in the West Baden Springs Hotel Atrium, and watch your little ones light up as they live out those childhood imaginary tea parties in real life.

Children jumping into the pool

Ready to jump in? Start at French Lick Springs Hotel, where our heated outdoor pool opens March 1 and it’s always just right for a dip at the indoor pool as well. Check our calendar to see what else is happening around the resort during your visit, such as the special high-flying acrobat shows planned throughout springtime at French Lick Springs Hotel.
