2. French Lick: home to one of the most charming & fun romantic getaways in Indiana

French Lick may be a surprise entry among the most romantic getaways in Indiana, but this small town has a cool resort that’s great for couples seeking a self-contained experience in a comparatively secluded location. 

French Lick Springs Hotel, part of the greater French Lick Resort, offers elegant accommodations and a variety of activities couples can enjoy, such as gambling at the onsite casino or unwinding at the resort’s indulgent spa. 

There’s also a charming town to explore, complete with a family-friendly train ride that rolls through the nearby Hoosier National Forest, which also features scenic trails for hiking.

Fun fact: French Lick was originally the site of natural sulfur springs, which have since disappeared. Obviously, however, the resort survived and now thrives.

3. Madison: an excellent base for an outdoorsy couples trip in Indiana

About equidistant from Cincinnati and Louisville, the small, riverfront city of Madison is home to a variety of cozy accommodations, like Clifty Inn, that provide a base for exploring the area’s natural beauty. 

On one hand, there’s the quiet and scenic Clifty Falls State Park, home to a series of gorgeous waterfalls couples can hike to. And on the other, the city sits on the Ohio River, where couples can enjoy all sorts of waterborne activities like river-jet tours.
