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 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!

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

This is basically a small upscale street mall built around a small pond. When you go there for the first time, you definite notice the quiet court yard with the pond full of fish and birds and the pretty buildings around filled with restaurants and shops. So the first reaction is - it would be so wonderful to come back... More

I've lived next door to this plaza since 1993 and it's such a beautiful setting. It's a shame the landlords have squeezed a lot of the tenants out, pure greed! There really isn't one restaurant (in my opinion) you can get something decent to eat that also isn't WAY overpriced. No quality or quantity. They've further ruined the quiet beauty... More
