Zionsville, Ind. -- The Town of Zionsville, IN has been announced as the recipient of the 2013 Google eCity Award for the state of Indiana. The annual Google eCity Awards recognize the strongest online business community in each U.S. state.
The town was described via the Google eCity Awards page as, "A delightful destination in Indiana, Zionsville is known for its scenic downtown. Businesses here are using the web to virtually connect with travelers, prospects and current customers who can surf before they buy."
