We stayed at the West Baden Springs Hotel, which is a National Historic Landmark. The architecture is spectacular and the grounds are really beautiful.

In addition to enjoying our time together in a lovely setting, highlights of our mini-trip included my first casino experience (the neighboring hotel - French Lick - is home to a large Vegas-style casino, where I was carded (thank you, Mr. Security Guard)), a delicious steak dinner, sleeping past 9 am, breakfast in bed and a little antiquing on the way home. Details on that tomorrow!
