Southern Indiana Attractions and Ideas


Welcome to Corydon, a small town with big fun. 

Sure, we’ll be forever celebrated in Indiana history as the state’s first capital, but history is just one chapter in our story. Take a deeper look, and you’ll discover hidden gems that make Harrison County a unique and exciting retreat for adults and kids alike. 

Nestled in the hills of Southern Indiana just 30 miles west of Louisville, we offer unexpected adventures and charming Hoosier hospitality where memory-making lasts a lifetime. Here you can enjoy an authentic slice of Americana while also experiencing thrilling natural wonders, lively art and music, wineries, and breathtaking landscape. 

Nature is at the heart of what makes this a destination like no other. Whether you’re seeking adrenaline-pumping outdoor fun or peaceful scenery, we offer the best of both worlds. Adventure enthusiasts can hike or bike park trails, discover the mystery of Southern Indiana’s natural caverns and caves, and zipline through the treetops—just to name a few. 

While you can count on plenty of adventure in Corydon, a quiet escape awaits where you can rest, relax, and recharge. Tucked inside the Harrison Crawford State Forest, O’Bannon Woods State Park offers camping, fishing, boating, swimming, and so much more. Afterwards you can sip Chardonnay at a local winery, tour historic buildings, pick up some fresh fruit at a farmer’s market, play a round of golf, picnic at the park, and stroll through quaint local shops. 

Corydon goes big on the arts, too. Annual festivals throughout the year showcase local artisans selling stunning handmade items. Why not let your own creativity shine by trying your hand at painting, drawing, and more at one of the do-it-yourself art studios? And if you like music, you’ve come to the right place. Corydon hosts Bluegrass on the Square, country music performances, free weekly concerts downtown throughout the summer, and musical guests at local wineries.

Who says you need to spend a lot to have a good time? Whether you come for the weekend or stay the whole week, a trip to Corydon is easy on the wallet but heavy on fun. With so much to do, there’s truly something for all ages and stages. We can’t wait to see you!
