My husband and I, son and his best friend and my parents all went on a vacation. We went to French Lick Indiana and stayed in the French Lick Resort. Have you heard of this place? It is in Southern Indiana. The resort has much to offer like golfing, swimming, horse back riding, bicycling and a Casino. My husband and I biked some and swam in the pool. My son and his friend golfed and my parents mostly played the slot machines in the Casino. One thing that is interesting about the town, is that it and a few other areas around it are the only portion of Indiana that is in the Eastern Time Zone. The rest of the State is in the Central Time Zone. The picture is one I took. It is a view off the front porch of the French Lick Hotel we stayed in. The front porch was nice to sit on. It had nice rocking chairs.

@TiarasOceanView The food was extra. Some of the restaurants were more expensive than others.

Just another 90 miles and you could have come to meet me and Scar, but noooooo By the way...the majority of Indiana is Eastern, not Central

Oh yes, you do live not that far away from that area. Ok, I see that, now I get it , most of Indiana is in Eastern.

@LeaPea2417 Yeah, Indiana is weird...I'm 30 miles from Vincennes, which is Eastern, and 70 miles from Evansville, which is Central...always makes planning trips there a bit confusing

Indiana does not participate in Daylight Savings Time. Several states are in two different time zones that's fairly common. TN is in two and we are just a few miles from the Central Zone.

Yes, the area is out in the middle of nowhere, it seems. Then all of a sudden , amid the cornfields , the town and resort appear.
