The Gateway Mile

The Gateway Mile shopping


Downtown Elkhart’s Gateway Mile is a walkable mile filled with inviting locally owned shops, restaurants, gorgeous gardens, museums and more. Eat at a downtown bistro, The Vine or savor plated perfection at Artisan, a AAA Four Diamond and Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner. Sip some suds at Iechyd Da Brewing Company or enjoy a glass of wine or a refreshing wine slushy at Gateway Cellar Winery. Update your wardrobe with contemporary fashions at Stephenson’s, Bella’s Boutique or Twisted String. Explore tranquil surroundings, gardens and sculptures at Wellfield Botanic Gardens and enjoy a sweet treat of delicious homemade ice cream at the Vanilla Bean Creamery. There’s so much more to explore along the Gateway Mile.
