With its unique combination of small-town ambiance and urban sophistication, Zionsville is an ideal destination for anyone seeking a beautiful, safe and engaging place to call home. Its population of almost 30,000 makes it one of the smaller suburbs to Indianapolis’ north, but what it lacks in numbers it makes up in culture, activities and outdoor opportunities. At Senior Living Advisor, we often recommend senior living facilities and neighborhoods in Zionsville because this lovely community checks off so many requirements for today’s seniors.

A quaint village setting

A trip to downtown Zionsville feels like a trip to the good old days, where you can walk to your favorite restaurant or poke around an assortment of shops. Cross-stitchers can indulge their hobby’s passion at Persnickety Stitchers on Main Street, while your favorite philatelist (that’s a fancy word for a stamp collector) may want to check out the Village Stamp & Coin shop. Zionsville’s main street is as old as the town itself. In 1852 the town’s first home and first store were built. You can read all about it on the historical marker located on the south end of Zionsville’s quaint brick Main Street.

Foodies feel at home in Zionsville. Locally owned restaurants give the area a unique flavor, with everything from seafood to Thai, Italian and the all-American burger shop. Lona Newton, our Senior Living Advisor owner, particularly enjoys Auberge Restaurant & Bar for its French-inspired cuisine and Salty Cowboy tequileria for tasty tacos.

Lots of outdoor options

Zionsville Parks and Recreation offers an amazing 500 acres of parkland and 20 miles of trails within the community. There’s no need to sentence yourself to a treadmill when you can take a walk on the conveniently paved Big-4 Trail, weather permitting. If you like to hit the links, Zionsville is home to four golf courses, including one municipal course. Lions Park, a privately owned recreation space owned by the Zionsville Lions Club, offers many athletic opportunities, including its two lighted tennis courts/pickleball courts. The Zionsville Nature Center, located at the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library, focuses on local Indiana habitats and wildlife.

Awards and citations

Zionsville receives national recognition for its character and charm. It has been named one of the “Best Cities to Live in Indiana,” one of “Indiana’s 20 Safest Cities” and one of the “Best Suburbs in America.”  It consistently scores high as one of the safest cities in the state, with low rates of violent and property crime.

Zionsville’s location just outside of Indianapolis proper means its residents have easy access to state-of-the-art healthcare. Witham Health Services, Ascension Medical Group and Riverview Health are a few of the many healthcare options located within Zionsville, and the prestigious Indiana Health University Hospital and IU’s Simon Cancer Center can be easily accessed from the highway.
