This area primarily consists of Main Street, paved entirely in brick which is lined with small stores and restaurants. Businesses are, for the most part, family run. The majority of the town, however, has the look and feel of a typical smaller Indiana municipality. BusinessWeek rated Zionsville as Indiana's 'Best Affordable Suburb' in 2009.
