If you always find yourself saying “it doesn’t feel like the holidays yet,” a visit to French Lick Resort puts a little twinkle back into this season. Whether you’re admiring the half-million lights resort-wide, snapping a family photo under the 40-foot-tall Christmas trees, or oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at the all the decorations, this winter wonderland in southern Indiana is sure to get you in the spirit.
New this year are Gingerbread House Competitions on December 9 and 16 to add a bit of spice to the season. Bring the family, craft your gingerbread house and make some memories.
There’s plenty more for the kiddos to enjoy throughout the holidays, too. They can visit Santa Claus on the weekends, and even write St. Nick a letter and have a personal reply mailed back before Christmas. Kids can also enjoy Santa’s toy maker workshop, or story time and cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus. And to burn that pent-up Christmas energy, they can go off the walls at Winter Break Bounce Bash (daily from December 18-30) with bounce houses, games and more.
And how ‘bout a holiday concert? Make plans to see Home Free’s special “Home Free for the Holidays” show Friday, December 15. If you’re not familiar with this all-vocal group with a huge YouTube following, they put on a stellar show with their catchy harmonies and quick-witted humor. It’s an all-ages show guaranteed to be a holiday highlight.
Really, you can make a trip out of admiring all the dazzling holiday decorations and lights. From the North Pole holiday village scenes and famous gingerbread house, to the dozen Christmas trees and animated projection light shows daily at French Lick Springs Hotel, this winter wonderland is loaded with great photo ops and Instagram-worthy views.
