French-Lick is a town located in southern Indiana in Orange County. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,941. In 2006, the state's tenth (modern legalized) casino opened in the town of French Lick. Originally, the town was a French trading post built near a spring and salt lick. The sulfur springs were commercially exploited starting around 1840 and French Lick became famous as a spa town. In the early 20th century, it also featured casinos and attracted celebrities like boxer Joe Louis, composer Irving Berlin and gangster Al Capone. Today, the resort, spa and casino at French Lick is one of the Midwest's premier destinations. It offers two world class hotels set in the lush, natural beauty of the Hoosier National Forest. The casino at French Lick features a 51,000 square foot Vegas-style gaming facility with state-of-the-art slot machines, blackjack, roulette and craps tables. There are an abundance of dining options and live shows at the casino lounge. The spa at French Lick allows visitors to relax and rejuvenate with a variety of treatments. There is a full-service salon and health club, indoor lap pool and of course, the famous mineral springs - the only one found in southern Indiana. French Lick is also home to 3 breathtaking golf courses that provide a unique and scenic golf experience. French Lick is centrally and conveniently located, just a short drive from Chicago, St. Louis, Nashville and Louisville.
