A weekend in Historic Corydon and Harrison County

A weekend in Historic Corydon and Harrison County

I’m Headed To Corydon, Indiana! #ThisIsIndiana #OMTravels

I am super excited because this afternoon I will be headed to Corydon, Indiana for a fun filled weekend!  Full of caves and caverns that we get to explore, among historical sites and much more, I am excited to see what Corydon has to offer!  From Cincinnati, Ohio, Corydon is a little over 2 hours away.  This will be my first time visiting.  Let me tell you a little bit about some of the places that I will be visiting during my stay.

Hotel

I will be staying at the Holiday Inn in Corydon.  I have always had good experiences at Holiday Inns, so I am sure this one will be no different!

Attractions

  • Indiana Caverns – Located outside historic Corydon, Indiana, this is Indiana’s Longest Cave.  There will be a walking tour with a boat ride, and I will see and learn about diverse ecosystems, ice age bones, an amazing waterfall, various formations, and great heights and depths.
  • Marnengo girl1Marengo Caves and Cave Country Canoes – This U.S. National Natural Landmark features walking tours, canoeing and gemstone mining.
  • Squire Boon Caverns – Squire Boon Caverns is called “A treasure of Indiana history and the American pioneer spirit.”  Squire Boone and his brother, Daniel, discovered these caverns in 1790.  What a great piece of history!
  • Deere Farms – This will include a pumpkin patch, and southern Indiana’s largest corn maze.  This runs through November 2nd.  I’ve never experienced a corn maze, so this will be my first time doing one.
  • Golf Shores – The Golf Shores Fun Center includes black-light indoor mini golf, as well as a video arcade, snack bar, coffee shop and wi-fi lounge.
