Squire Boone Caverns

Squire Boone Caverns is a natural wonder attraction that provides guests a respite from their plugged-in, technology heavy lives. Squire Boone, American pioneer and legend, discovered the caverns in 1790 and soon built a thriving settlement centered around Boone's Mill, which is still operating today. Rich in history and geological wonders, guests to the Caverns will leave with plans to visit again and again. Along with the cave tour and Historic Boone's Mill, activities at the Caverns include: Indiana's Largest Rock Shop and Gem-Mining Sluice, the Soap Shop, Hannah Boone's Candle Shop, homemade sweets and savory lunch options at the kitchen and a nature trail to simply take some time out. For the adventurous, make a reservation for the Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventure. The tree-top canopy course is family-friendly (a smaller zipline course is available for those who may not meet the height requirements). The complete tour through the beautiful grounds at Squire Boone Caverns includes 6 canopy zip lines and a swinging suspension bridge. Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventures is ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) certified for installation, maintenance and operation, so you can feel secure and concentrate on having fun!

So loved visiting here! A clean, well-kept little "town", beautiful beautiful scenery, lovely little shops. Didn't know about Squire Boone, Daniel Boone's brother, before our visit but the kids have all the facts down now! We went in the caverns right after a big storm...MoreThank You Penny! Squire was so interesting and hardly anyone has heard of him. I'm glad your family now knows all about Squire! Thank You so much for the compliments, they are greatly appreciated.

We love to go camping here but camping spots are deteriating by weather and not maintained. They are not level anymore as the rain water has ruined them, need more water and electric spots only half is water and electric if that much. Bathrooms need updating

PROS
...This is a very nice links-style layout with lots of elevation change, doglegs, and deep bunkering to keep things interesting. The bunkers defined the layout well and many of
the bunkers have wispy grass on the back side helping to define them.
...The greens are large with many breaks and were in perfect shape for November.
...We had a frost delay and the starter did a great job keeping folks informed and out in a timely manner.
...The par threes were well designed in that the longer tees have a more difficult route to the hole than the shorter tees (worked good for me).

CONS
...The course had more blind shots than I would like. On a lot of tee shots I just had to guess where to hit and I was always worrying I might hit into another group.

While the tour was really uninteresting, the cave itself is beautiful and the grounds are very nice. I'd still recommend a visit if you're considering. Lots of steps up and down the cave but worth it if you're able. Might be a bit difficult with really little kids. Our youngest was 8. Lots of things to do on the grounds too - gem mining, candle store, food, gift shop, zip line. And be sure to visit the grist mill and ask for a demo. It's really cool. Also, they don't advertise it but will give $2 off each ticket with your AAA card. Be sure to ask.

John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail

Reviewed By Jonathan J - Columbus, Ohio

Heritage Park, 11405 E Miami River Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45252, is located along side the Great Miami River, off the Miami River Rd. On July 13, 1863, Gen. John Hunt Morgan's Division entered Ohio by crossing the Whitewater River at Harrison, after raiding portions of Kentucky and Indiana. Heritage Park preserves the area over which his men rode their horses, as they circled around Cincinnati that afternoon and night, to avoid the Union garrison under Gen. Burnside.

The park also contains a pioneer graveyard, the site of Dunlap's Station, an early stockade, and has ample recreation opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, baseball, hiking, and has a children's playground as well.

You could not pick a more beautiful spot for a picnic, or a spot so filled with history.

This municipal park is wonderful. Suitable for all types of activities- from Tennis to Hiking, to a bird zoo, to waddle pool. We rented a canoe for a short trip around the grounds and it was fabulous.

A bit of History is also included on the grounds- the importance of the quilted messages during the time of slavery are very visible in the child friendly exhibits. Highly recommended followed by a tray of the best fries in town.

Battle of Corydon Battlefield

Reviewed By jgbtravels - Louisville, KY

I just happened to be in the area and decided to stop there to read the markers, etc. It's well maintained and worth a quick stop if you are nearby. It's also the only actual Civil War battle to take place on Indiana soil. That being said there isn't much to see there. And any rate, it's just a few minutes away from the historic downtown district if you really want to say you have been there.

Indiana Caverns

A variety of experiences await you at Indiana Caverns. A beautiful cave tour through large rooms, by waterfall and formations, in a boat and past Ice Age fossils throughout the tour! On the property you can enjoy gemstone and fossil panning, exploring the Cavern of the Sabertooth, interpretive exhibits and more.

We visited Indiana Caverns for a school field trip. We decided to turn it into a family vacation weekend. We weren't disappointed. We loved the tour and our tour guide was awesome. We also appreciate the beautiful engravings on the rocks outside and the book selection inside. Our children did the gem mining and were fascinated by their treasures! We'd visit again.
