Spring Break

Book Now



You don’t have to travel miles and miles to experience all the thrills of spring break. Simplify the experience this year and get away closer to home at French Lick Resort. Bring the entire family for bowling, horseback riding, FootGolf, special events, and Slam Dunk Spring Break activities offering more fun just for kids.

Embark on a scavenger hunt, create some crafts, get outside for games, and enjoy a movie at the indoor pool. Our Slam Dunk Spring Break lasts from March 5 through April 4 with tons of kid-focused fun. The best part: Most events and activities are complimentary.

Live on the wild side and visit nearby Wilstem Wildlife Park to see and interact with some of the exotic creatures that occupy this unique 1,100-acre countryside ranch. From alpacas to zebras, there’s more than six dozen different animals at Wilstem plus unique animal encounters. Buddy up with the kangaroos in the “Roos and Crew” encounter, see grizzly bears or sloths up close, or give an African elephant a bath at the one-of-a-kind Elephant Spa Appointment.

There’s no time like spring for a ride. The Stables at French Lick Resort offer guided trail rides of 45 and 90 minutes for ages 8 and up, and pony rides for children under 8. Riders of all skill levels are welcome, and each guest is matched to a horse that is the best fit for them.

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 imaginary childhood tea parties in real life.

Children jumping into the pool

Ready to jump in? Be one of the first to take the plunge in our new outdoor pool at French Lick Springs Hotel, which is slated to open March 12. Both French Lick and West Baden Springs Hotels feature heated outdoor pools and an indoor pool, so the water is always just right for a swim.


After you've taken a dip, check our calendar to see what else is happening around the resort, and explore other spring break fun in and around the surrounding communities — everything from go-karts to an escape room to an indoor water park, all just a short drive from the resort.
