By roadmaven , October 26, in Lodging. After being closed for over a year for renovations, the French Lick Springs Resort Hotel is set to reopen, this time with a casino on the grounds. Since Indiana's backwards gaming laws force casinos to be "in water", a large pond had to be built so the "riverboat" casino could be built. As you can see by the picture in this New York Time article , the boat's not going far.

An invitation to visit and stay at a historical landmark, what was known as the "Eighth Wonder of the World" when it opened in , immediately intrigued me. Throw in an opportunity to play, not only a Pete Dye designed golf course, but the Pete Dye Course, his latest and greatest creation debuted in and my calendar is opened trying to comprehend the dates and geography. Work out it did as a sojourn in French Lick would fit in nicely on the way during my northern odyssey to Medinah for the Ryder Cup. Can you imagine an open area beneath a dome that is round and stretches across what seems to be as wide as a football field is long? So vast, it makes a fireplace that can accommodate foot logs look like some small miniature version in a doll house? There you are standing in the domed atrium of the West Baden Springs Hotel.
Our server Vidal was excellent along with the food! We was very patient with 10 ladies asking about breakfast items!! The fruit was fresh, pancakes were hot, and the eggs cooked to perfection! We ate two mornings here and had Vidal both times.
