So you’ve just moved to Zionsville. Your work week is done and your ready to spend some time with your spouse or significant other. But you’re not sure where to go or what to do?
The real question is where not to go?!
There are so many choices for a date night in Zionsville, but let’s start with these five.
For a fun evening of local wines and good food, Hopwood Cellars Winery is located right in the heart of the Village of Zionsville at 12 East Cedar Street. The Winery offers wine tasting seven days a week. On the weekends they offer their wine and food with a good dose of live music.
With a 4.5 rating out of 5, TripAdvisor.com lists Hopwood Cellars Winery as one of the top places to go in Zionsville. “Great place for a date or even just a Saturday afternoon shopping break.”
Don’t miss this opportunity for local, organic dining. The Loft Restaurant is the fine dining farm-to-table restaurant at Traders Point Creamery and it’s just an eight minute drive south of the Village of Zionsville.
“Our rotating menu reflects our dedication to raising and serving food in harmony with the land.” Traders Point Creamery is also a fully operating organic farm you can visit, tour and purchase their organic products.
With weekday wine and beer specials you might be tempted to take a mid-week break. But wait for the weekend and you will also get to enjoy live music every Friday night.
In the mood for a good beer but your date wants wine? Try Patrick’s Kitchen and Drinks. Their online menu boasts a long beer list with a warning that the draft list changes “quite often.” The only thing longer than the beer list is their extensive wine list.
Patrick’s is located right on Main Street in the Brick Street Inn. For a relaxed, intimate dining experience in The Village, this is your next date night. They also offer outdoor dining on the Brick Street Terrace, weather permitting, and live music is available occasionally, check the website.
Maybe your looking for a Saturday afternoon date experience where you can learn more about your community. SullivanMunce is a unique, local museum experience located in the south end of The Village. The center is a local resource for art, history and genealogy and is recognized as the “historical, artistic and cultural center of the Zionsville Community.”
“The center provides professional and community art exhibitions, historical exhibitions and enrichment classes.” Be sure to check the website for hours, classes, workshops and more.
Maybe an out-of-the-box afternoon with your date is what you’re looking for. Then Fanimation’s Antique Fan Museum is definitely a place you’ll want to visit. Be sure to check their hours on the website.
Fanimation is a manufacturer of unique ceiling fans and reintroduces antique fans with modern safety and control. The company was founded by Tom Frampton, an avid collector of antique fans. When the existing fan museum in Kansas needed a new home, Frampton offered his Fanimation facility in Zionsville to house the museum. The museum displays 450 antique fans including Frampton’s unique collection of fans.
