Every day at all of El Nopal’s locations, cooks whip up fresh batches of salsa, chips, and beans. The sauces and sides accent chicken or beef chimichangas, handmade tamales, and nachos smothered in cheese. All El Nopal locations offer complimentary chips and salsa with every meal, and some locations have outdoor seating areas. Performances by live bands at select locations serve as a pleasant distraction from meals, unlike a judge with highfalutin ideas about not eating in court.
A third-generation family pharmacy established in 1952, Butt Drugs keeps regulars coming back with an old-fashioned soda fountain and friendly service.

The shop's own line of novelty apparel lets fans show support for a local institution and amass raised eyebrow glances by donning an "I Love Butt Drugs" T-shirt ($9.95) or hooded sweatshirt ($18.95). With a reliable pharmacy and cheap cups of fresh hot coffee ($0.35) at the barstool-lined soda fountain, many locals make Butt Drugs a regular daily stop.

Players who knew Old Capital Golf Club back when it was founded in 1946 wouldn't recognize much about the course today. The name back then was Corydon Country Club, the course consisted of just nine holes, and it had no "greens" at all, at least in the modern sense. Each putting surface was made of sand, which meant players had to smooth over their ball marks, putting lines, and secret treasure Xs before heading to the next tee.
In spite of this early inconvenience, players kept returning to the course, enjoying its hilly terrain and the added challenge of Little Indian Creek. And the course has modernized over the years?a second nine holes were added in 1995, and the club also boasts a recently added three-hole par 3 course where youngsters and shorter-hitting beginners can find their fairway legs.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,732 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 71.9 from the back tees * Course slope of 133 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard
While Daniel Boone busied himself gallivanting about the wilderness in search of the perfect hat, his brother led a much more peaceful life. Squire Boone surrounded himself with caverns filled with waterfalls and stalagmites and a tranquil pioneer village. Now named for him, Squire Boon Caverns and Village not only accommodates tours deep within its caves, but high above its forested floor through Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Course.
Designed for ages seven and older, each 90- to 120-minute treetop trip begins on the ground for a brief training session and equipment fitting.

Tours traverse a swinging suspension bridge and glide on six ziplines over the caverns and village, as well as acres of neighboring forests and ravines.
