Located within Twigs and Rags furniture boutique, Kokomo Cutie sells handmade children's apparel and accessories, many of which are made by the shop’s owners, a mother-and-daughter team. Individually crafted dresses, jewelry, and key chains leave youngsters looking dapper on the way to school, and a sea of colorful fabrics rustle on the shelves, showcasing popular children's brands such as Mud Pie, Ganz, and Stephen Joseph. Accented by playful patterns and ribbons, the billowy gowns are crafted from the fabric traditionally used to protect pillows during dreams about Marshmallow Island.
One of the best times of day at Horizon Cellars is dusk. That's when guests out on the covered deck can relax with a glass of wine and watch the setting sun turn the clouds over the Mount Vernon Springs ridge line a soft pink. On weekends, guests can bring a picnic basket and blanket to the winery and sip everything from sweet plum wines to mellow white wines while playing fetch or Monopoly with the dog.
Inside the tasting room, which is located atop a rolling ridge, guests sample Horizon's wines and meads. Its meads are similar to its wines, but are made with honey from Horizon's bee farm instead of grapes. The winery's tasting menus change depending on season and availability, so Horizon recommends that visitors call ahead for a listing of that day's wines.
