Downtown Kokomo is where the magic happens. 

Welcome to downtown Kokomo! Our revitalized, historic downtown district invites you to visit our many shops, restaurants, attractions, and events – we know you’ll enjoy your time here. 

Make Your Home In Downtown Kokomo

Kokomo’s downtown is thriving. And with such a vibrant atmosphere downtown, many are choosing to make it their home. The downtown area continues to grow with housing options and businesses, making it easier than ever to find your place in downtown Kokomo.

Living downtown has its advantages. There are miles of walking and biking paths that connect the center of town with parks and attractions throughout the community. With a unique blend of locally owned restaurants and shopping nearby, a free public parking garage, the free City Line Trolley public transportation system, and a highly walkable downtown core, you’ll get a variety of “big city” amenities in a “small town” atmosphere.

Visit Downtown Attractions


Art and music are at the heart of the downtown experience. Whether you appreciate traditional arts, modern arts or public art, it’s all here for you to find. You’ll find live music at the outdoor amphitheater in Foster Park or nearby at the Rhum Academy of Music.

Several downtown establishments are also part of the live music scene in downtown Kokomo, including The Coterie and American Dream Hi Fi. South Main Street also offers ways to enjoy arts and music thanks to shops like Kokomo Olive and The Joint Life Collective.


Downtown Kokomo is a haven for boutique shopping. You’ll find timeless treasures at boutiques  such as P.F. Hendricks, Cova & Co and Be Belle Boutique. For a retro shopping experience, stop in at Kokomo Toys & Collectibles for vintage toys. Stop next door at American Dream H Fi for vintage vinyls and eclectic art, and find a wide selection of used books at Chapter 2 Books.

Downtown flavor

With all the unique offerings, you’ll want more than just a taste of downtown Kokomo.
