Enjoy a Scenic Drive and Wine Tasting
Get out of the city for a while and take a scenic drive on Beloit’s winding country roads. Relish the beauty of antique barns, horses, and farmland.

DC Estate Winery, nestled in the lightly rolling hills, gives you the feeling of being in Tuscany. They offer a variety of wines for every taste, a cozy fireplace, outstanding service, and a generous tasting for a mere $5. DC also has a wedding venue, and they hold various events including paint night and murder mystery, so be sure to check out their calendar!

The luxury suites include a two-sided gas fireplace with a sitting area, spa-like bathrooms, plush robes, and minibar. To enhance the romantic atmosphere, you can order chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne, and rose petals!
For posh amenities, serene ambiance, and cozy linens, the 1810 Emerson House Bed & Breakfast should be your first choice for your romantic overnight stay in a lovely example of Georgian Colonial Revival architecture.

And, every evening, desserts are available as a final treat before retiring. Now that’s romantic!
Explore Beloit’s Historically-Preserved Downtown
Beloit’s historically preserved downtown, with a decorative gantry and brick-paved main street, reminds you of yester-year and offers an exceptional array of boutiques, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, a record store, and even an old-fashioned barber shop.
