We Love Zionsville: A Guide to Indianapolis Area Neighborhoods


If you are looking for the small town community, you’ve come to the right place. Zionsville is located in Boone County and has a population of just over 29,000. No matter how much the community grows, you still find yourself being drawn to the small town charm. There is so much to explore with the parks and shopping in the village-style downtown (paved entirely in brick!) area that Zionsville has to offer. 

What makes Zionsville family friendly?

Zionsville is a town that makes you feel welcomed immediately. It has options for families to walk pretty much anywhere, 17 parks for kids to play, and unique restaurants! If you are looking for a small town that is close to the big city, Zionsville is the place for you. With amazing schools, home values increasing and tons of community events, you won’t regret living here. 

What events or traditions does this city have for the community?

From weekly activities you can enjoy, such as Mommy & Me, Concerts, and Farmer’s Markets to huge annual holiday festivals and events, there is almost always something you can be doing in this quaint town! The Zionsville Street Dance is the town’s largest party of the year and includes music, food trucks, a beer garden and even an area for the kids! The best part about the events in Zionsville is that they are put together with much care and attention to detail and are catered for the community. 

What makes Zionsville unique?

Zionsville is unique in that it is a small, close-knit town but also near such a big city. A lot of times it is hard for a small town to keep that feel when you are just minutes away from a big city. However, Zionsville feels like that place you can always call home and a place that feels safe. The neighborhoods in Zionsville are family friendly and homeowners take pride in keeping their properties well-kept. 

What are some of the favorite businesses, stores and local restaurants you would recommend?
