RICHARD: Everyone thinks that traveling on business is so glamorous but what they don’t realize is that the business traveler never gets to see the places he visits. My last trip to Rome, I spent the whole four days in a conference room by the airport. I might as well have been in French Lick, Indiana.
French Lick is a small town of less than 2000 people in Indiana. It was originally a French trading post built near a salt lick, hence its odd name. It was a spa town in the 19th century, and by the early twentieth century, was known for its casinos, which attracted celebrities. Although its glory days are behind it, it still has a historic hotel resort with a casino and excellent golf facilities.
