Winter Family Fun

Your Family's Next Getaway

Winter doesn’t have to put a damper on family fun!

There’s plenty of things for your family to do in southern Indiana, even if the cold keeps you indoors. Why wait until warmer weather to travel when family adventure isn’t far away? See below for ideas for your next convenient, affordable and fun getaway in Harrison County.


Underground Adventures

Natural beauty, but sheltered from the elements.

The area’s three caves remain around 54 degrees year-round, making them a perfect activity for cold weather. Find unique adventures at each cave: from a 25-minute underground boat ride through Indiana Caverns, to Marengo Cave’s Crystal Palace, to Squire Boone Caverns’ pioneer village with functioning gristmill built by Squire (brother of Daniel Boone) in 1809.

Interactive Fun

Hi-tech learning at the Harrison County Discovery Center

At the new Harrison County Discovery Center, you’ll find interactive, immersive displays for all ages featuring the area’s wildlife, natural science, and history—including a 360-degree projection of a reenactment of the only Civil War battle fought on Indiana soil, the Battle of Corydon.
