No, it's not a joke... it's a great place for tasty treats and unique gifts
Along Interstate 64, about 30 miles west of Louisville, there lies a quaint little town called Corydon.
Founded in 1808, it served as Indiana’s capital from 1813 to 1825.
Considering its rich and well-preserved history, Corydon is a great place for tourists. Whether you’re passing through Southern Indiana on a road trip, or you live in Louisville and looking for something to do outside the city, Corydon is the perfect stop.
The best place to grab souvenirs and funny gifts for friends is definitely Butt Drugs, the nostalgic pharmacy located in the heart of downtown.
It was founded in 1952 by the Butt family – no, the name wasn’t a clever marketing scheme, but it seems to have worked out quite well.
Maintaining the ’50s theme, it features a vintage soda fountain with… yep, you guessed it… Butt Shakes.
We tried the popular Peanut Butter Prescription, and it was delicious!
Other notable attractions in Corydon include Beaver Street Tap Room (they have stone oven pizza, yum!), Turtle Run Winery, Governor Hendricks’ Headquarters, Zimmerman Art Glass, caves and caverns, live country music shows, seasonal farmers’ markets and much more.
