Big Dog’s Smokehouse BBQ
29 E. Jackson St., Cicero
This family-owned BBQ joint in northern Hamilton County will have you licking your fingers and maybe even your plate! Baby back ribs, smoked pulled pork and St. Louis gooey butter are just a few of the menu options. If you haven’t visited, you’ll love the old-time atmosphere with a mechanical horse, a barber chair and a jukebox. When the weather’s cool, stop in for make your own tabletop campfire s’mores.
Potter’s Bridge Park
19401 Allisonville Road, Noblesville
Put on your jacket and take a stroll along Potter’s Bridge in Noblesville, the county’s only remaining covered bridge. Constructed in 1870 by Josiah Durfee and later restored in 1999, the bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a centerpiece for the 66-acre park surrounding the historic icon. It’s a picturesque scene with the changing leaves and a peaceful view of the White River from the bridge.
Sunrise Café at Uptown
809 Conner St., Noblesville
Located right on the downtown corner of Noblesville square, Sunrise Café is a quaint breakfast and brunch spot where you can find a great cup of joe. Try the eggs benedict, corned beef hash bowl or the traditional eggs and toast. Or if you’re in the mood for lunch, order the strawberry spinach salad, quesadillas and wraps. You can also find the café at the Noblesville Farmer’s Market selling menu items like cinnamon rolls and biscuits and gravy.
