Why stay in the Midwest for spring break?
Simply put, Corydon is a small town that gives you some of the best of what Indiana has to offer.
Well known as the first state capitol of Indiana, Corydon and Harrison County are also home to some of the most beautiful views in the area, and the county offers many different year-round adventures for locals and out-of-towners alike.
Outdoor activities can be found everywhere in Harrison County, and offer visitors a chance to see firsthand the beauty that engulfs the Ohio valley region. Check out O’Bannon Woods State Park for some R & R in nature.

There is no shortage of activities for every age.
Harrison County is home to not one but two stops on the Indiana Cave Trail: Squire Boone Caverns and Indiana Caverns Family Adventure Park. These ancient cave systems are open year-round, and both have opportunities for explorers of every age. Don’t worry about bad weather, because the caves are a steady 52 degrees Fahrenheit year-round.
During your visit to Squire Boone, you’ll see rushing underground streams and rare underground waterfalls. You’ll also get to explore the mill that has been churning out grain since the 1800s.
