    We've been drinking wine from Oliver winery for years. We finally had the chance to visit the winery, so we did so with the Reserved tasting. The tasting was an excellent experience not only because I really enjoy the wine, but the woman who lead the tasting was informative, not snooty about the wine, and was just a great "tour guide" through our flights and the history of the winery.

    The wine itself is excellent. I normally do not like sweeter wines, but I make an exception for the Sweet Red and the Lemon Moscato. The standard flavors are all so good you may wonder if you really are in Indiana. The ciders and the Pilot projects are excellent beverages and surprises from a winery. Finally, their Tawny may be my favorite port I've ever had.

    Overall, this winery is a must visit if you are in the area and enjoy wine.

    Visited Indiana University for a conference. The campus and its buildings including Biddle Hotel are absolutely beautiful.

    Was not sure what to expect but our 5 year old grandson loved this place and all of the activities. Safe and well organized, he ran from one activity to another. Did not want to leave and had such a good time. He was fascinated by nearly every display. I am sure he will want to return.

    Back in April 2021, I visited Assembly Hall twice in order to get my two vaccine doses—and was reminded about how iconic and huge this place is. I’ve lived in Bloomington for so long, but as with any location, you tend to take things for granted; I always walk or drive past Assembly Hall without really valuing it for what it’s worth. It’s a crazy cool place to watch a game.

    Hopefully with COVID diminishing in the next year, normal match schedules can finally return to their full glory!

    Only drove around to see fall colors but anxious to go boating and fishing, we have a kayak, but boat rentals for fishing are a plus!

    While visiting the IU campus, we made time to spend an hour in this architectural gem, an I.M. Pei-designed building, housing a wonderful representative art collection. First we explored the building, enjoying the 3-story atrium with all of its lines and and shadows and glass ceiling. There are seven galleries to explore: Ancient; Asian; Africa, Oceania, and Indigenous Art of the Americas; American and European; Contemporary; and Prints and Drawings. The American and European art gallery is a representative collection with examples of many styles over several centuries, including Renaissance, Dutch, American Landscapes, and Impressionism. The Contemporary gallery includes works by Henry Moore, Marcel Duchamp, George Rickey, and Jackson Pollock. And in the special exhibition gallery, we saw an exhibition of the actress Glenn Close's movie costume collection which she donated to Indiana U.

    Right through Downtown Bloomington. Plenty of shops, restaurants, etc. Farmers market was also going on. South end has the new Switch Yard Park - very cool. North end is shorter, but very quiet

    My favorite thing about the Farmers Market is the variety of live performances at each market and the many special activities that adjoin the market. The restaurant area is also wonderful. Of course the produce being sold by local farmers is excellent

    It’s an amazing staple of this town. Historically a piece of the towns past, do many famous and infamous live shows. It’s a beautiful place. Depending on why you’re there, it’s an amazing experience.

    My daughter and I checked out the stadium on a campus visit. It looked big and pretty cool. She’s hoping to catch some games there this fall. Walking from campus looks pretty easy.

    This is a gem of a beach, not extra muddy, depends on the day on how busy it is. Fishing area is further away from the swimmers and the boating area is further out. Right next to the fourwinds. This one kind of reminds me of the movie Dirty Dancing. No camping, but it has the Fourwinds Resort, out dated mini golf course, but not a party area. There also isn't someone coordinating games lol, but at one time this area was hopping like what you would have seen in the movies.

    Couples weekend and we stopped in (found via Google Maps).
    Chocolates and wine due to Valentines Day. The wines were good. My favorites were blackberry and blueberry.

    This is a quality antique store when passing through this university town. Three floors of treasures in an old brick building. I found some nice black walnut slabs of wood in the basement level at great prices, so were quite pleased. Friendly staff adds to the charm. Worth it.

    A beautiful historic county courthouse in the center of downtown Bloomington! Be sure to walk all the way around this 1906 Beaux Arts building to see all of the individual memorials and works of art...the war memorial, the 1910 population center plaque, the tribute to women in government, the historic marker, and the building topper...a copper weathervane saved from the previous courthouse building!! Enjoy the lovely sculptures over the main entrance, and if the building is open, check out the lovely glass dome!! And then just sit and enjoy the day!! It's also lovely when lit at night too.
