French Lick Travel Guide

French Lick/West Baden is home to 2 historic hotels, the West Baden Springs Hotel and the French Lick Springs Resort. Both were built in the mid-1800s and used the area’s mineral springs to attract visitors to their competing resorts.

Go to the Elephant Spa An elephant spa is exactly what it sounds like! Elephant lovers, you’ll never forget the opportunity to give an elephant a bath. It’s just as amazing as one might expect.

Leaving from just outside the gates of the French Lick Resort, the French Lick Scenic Railway takes visitors on a 20-mile journey through Hoosier National Forest and the 2200-foot Burton tunnel.
