Beautiful plaza with fountains and fairy lights

Admittedly we visited over Christmas and the lights may not always be there but it looked magical as the daylight dimmed. We had gone to visit The Blackhawk Automotive Museum and... read more

Stores are constantly changing. Poor selection. Will return only for movie theater. Too uppity even for Danville.

We stopped at Blackhawk Plaza expecting an upscale shopping experience but found empty storefronts and going-out-of-business sales. Difficult to navigate with a stroller. Also lacks sufficient restrooms. Very disappointed.

Blackhawk Plaza continually goes through various transformations. I think the percentage of stores and restaurants going in and out of business is higher then the norm for a center. Restaurant, grocery, stores are mainly on the higher side and quality average but not exceptional. The Car Museum is outstanding and the fountains are beautiful and relaxing.

Admittedly we visited over Christmas and the lights may not always be there but it looked magical as the daylight dimmed. We had gone to visit The Blackhawk Automotive Museum and were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. Unfortunately, not all of the shops were open after we had visited the Museum but we had a meander through the... More

This shopping center has some good stores like Draeger's Grocery store - a higher end grocery store with lots of good food and kitchen wear. There are restaurants and cafes for both patio and inside dining. There is the Superlative Blackhawk Automobile Museum. There is a good men's clothing store Patrick James and Anthropologie for women. The shopping center is... More

I went to an event at Blackhawk museum but I was pleasantly surprised that it was around this plaza, the lake by the stores and restaurant and the beautiful waterfall makes it seem like you are taking a walk somewhere special. At night I loved the stringed lights that change the ambiance to a romantic or just fun area to... More

If you are looking for a great book for this age group 9 month to 2 years old. Counting Smiley Faces by Pami L. Wahl Go to your local bookstore ask them to order it from Trafford publishing. Go to their bookstore section. Hope to see it in your bookstore.

Walk around the plaza on a warm summer evening. Food is good at every restaurant and shopping is fun at Anthropology, Apricot Lane and Francesca's. Get a relaxing Mani/Pedi at Polished Nail Bar. Please help keep the shops in business by buying something!

The Blackhawk Plaza has some very good restaurants a few with great options for outdoor dining on a nice day. They have very good seasonal events - concerts on Fridays in the summer and Halloween, Santa, Easter Bunny. Play area for kids and a couple of good museums. Nice water features with ducks and swans, you can buy food to... More
