Visit South Bend

When someone mentions South Bend, Indiana — your first thought is likely Notre Dame University.  The city and university are certainly synonymous but South Bend offers a lot more for travelers and it’s a place we say is worthy of your travel dollars.  That’s why for Destination Spotlight #75 in our popular ongoing series — we chose to feature this vibrant place that’s located in the 19th State in our Nation, that was admitted to the Union back in 1816 — and is known as the Hoosier State!  If outdoor adventure is your thing — and these days even as things are improving surrounding the Coronavirus outdoor activities remain as popular as ever — start with a relaxing walk along the St. Joseph River that will connect you to the city and lead to many other fun adventures.  From the Studabaker National Museum to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, there’s the Grotto of our Lady of Lourdes — plus you can explore the Potawatomi Zoo or go experience the East Race Waterway — the world’s first manmade whitewater rafting course in North America!  And did we mention there’s a famous University in town?  Certainly walking the Notre Dame campus, taking in the Word of Life mural (aka “Touchdown Jesus”) to get your own photo or even attending a big “Fighting Irish” game will make any visit special.  And while you’re there — when your sweet tooth needs some soothing — don’t forget a visit (or tour) to South Bend Chocolate!  To hear the full interview that ran across our national network of 470 weekly affiliates airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa with Rob DeCleene of Visit South Bend, during our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 15 May 2021, simply click-on the play arrow below this text …
