For the History Buffs

America’s National Churchill Museum is the No. 1 reason to visit Fulton. Located on the Westminster campus, the museum gives visitors a much deeper understanding of Churchill and what it was like to lead through World War II. Churchill was a prolific writer and artist, and the museum houses his personal letters, speeches and artwork. Outside the museum, there are pieces of the Berlin Wall. 

For a Little Shopping

While you’re in the Brick District, spend some time browsing through the shelves at Prickly Pear Antiques. This shop has a variety of antiques, hilarious kitchen towels and signs, goat milk soap and home décor. You might find Jim Beam decanters and other unique items to add personality to your home. Open two years, it’s the perfect place to shop for gifts.

For a Tasty Meal

Situated on the brick-paved streets and buildings that make up the historic Brick District is Beks. Established in 2005, this restaurant serves delicious steaks and a killer burger topped with smoked gouda and caramelized onions. The ambiance is cozy with tin crown molding, exposed brick and hardwood floors. The building is historic and was designed by architect Morris Frederick Bell. 

For a Cozy Place to Rest

Loganberry Inn is a quaint Victorian-style bed and breakfast built in 1899 by a professor at Westminster College. The inn has hosted former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. At check in, you get a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie to savor. In the morning, enjoy a lovely breakfast. The bed and breakfast boasts a lounge where you can sit by the fireplace and read a book or mingle with other guests. 

For a Quick Nightcap

You’ve had a long day of fun in Fulton, but you’re not quite ready to end the night just yet. If you want to indulge in a post-dinner drink, visit Fulton’s 1851 Underground Tap & Grill. This casual eatery also boasts a creative cocktail list, and it is a nice spot for a cold brewski or tasty nightcap. They have a good beer selection, and the restaurant has that neighborhood bar feel.
