Zionsville is an intriguing blend of modern and rustic with a small-town feel, complete with a village-style downtown where Main Street is paved entirely in brick. Residents flock to The Friendly Tavern for top-notch pub grub, while Chicago transplants love that they can get a taste of home at Rush on Main. Also not to be missed is the handmade pasta at Convivio Italian Artisan Cuisine, the tacos and margaritas at The Salty Cowboy, and the homemade pie selection at My Sugar Pie. In the fall, the Zionsville Fall Festival is a community favorite, as is the Brick Street Market in the spring.
Carmel features a bustling Arts & Design District in the heart of the city that is home to several art galleries, interior designers and specialty shops, with many dining options sprinkled in amongst them. The District itself is an art installation of sorts, featuring 16 life-like bronze sculptures from the collection “Celebrating the Familiar” by J. Seward Johnson. Patrons of the arts rave about The Palladium, the world-class concert hall that is the crown jewel of the Center for the Performing Arts and home to the Carmel Symphony Orchestra. The center also includes two smaller venues, The Tarkington - home to Civic Theatre, and the Studio Theater- home to the Actors Theatre of Indiana. Lovers of cabaret flock to Feinstein’s, located inside the elegant Hotel Carmichael, which offers almost nightly entertainment.
Foodies appreciate the Southern Coastal offerings at Juniper on Main and the small plates at Divvy, while Anthony’s Chophouse offers an innovative take on traditional steakhouse staples. At perennially popular Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream, someone is always attempting the Big Ugly Challenge or celebrating with a milkshake masterpiece.
Carmel is internationally recognized for its system of roundabouts, and its Christkindlmarkt has become one of the top holiday markets in the country. Other yearly events are Artomobilia, the Art of Wine, the Carmel International Art Festival and CarmelFest.
