About this trip idea
Allow 3 days.
Need a break from the ordinary? The charming town of Vevay, on the banks of the Ohio River, provides a refreshing getaway for two.
Let your spirit soar
Start your journey with an outdoor experience at Dagaz Acres . Climb to the treetops and soar high above the ravines on a zipline adventure! Watch the forest floor fly by below you as you traverse seven dual zips, three canopies and two rope suspension bridges. Relive the memories of your adventure as you snuggle up in Schenck Mansion Bed & Breakfast , an 1874 mansion built by the son of a wealthy hay king in the French Second Empire style. Explore four porches, seven balconies and 35 rooms of beautiful, historic architecture and furniture. A fresh homemade breakfast is worth waking up for!
Savor the moment
Taste the finer things in life at Ridge Winery Tasting Room . Their rich wines range from award-winning dry reds and whites to sweet fruit varieties like Wild Cherry and a blend of apple and blackberry. Their newest wine, RuralCool Riesling, packs a pleasing, crisp flavor. As you sip, munch on a cheese plate featuring local morsels from Brickhouse Creamery and stroll hand-in-hand along the breathtaking Ohio River. For even more Indiana wines, visit in August during the Swiss Wine Festival , a celebration of the area’s Swiss heritage. For $25, you can both sample the creations of thirteen local wineries in the festival’s Wine Pavilion. Let your Swiss side emerge as you watch polka dancers kick up their heels, participate in the famous Grape Stomp or take a riverboat cruise on the Ohio.
Soak up the local flavor
At Tony’s Sculpture Garden , steel and fiber don’t get thrown away—they are transformed into sheer beauty. Tony Catanzaro melds metals, wood, found objects and his imagination to create astounding works of modern sculpture. Roam through his yard of masterpieces and let him share the story behind each one. Hungry? Stop by the charming Java Bean Café & Confectionery in downtown Vevay for delicious foods made from fresh ingredients, decadent handmade chocolates and gourmet coffee. Their Gallery Wall of Art features the work of a different local artist each month.
