Notre Dame

Last month I attended a state conference on the campus of Notre Dame in South Bend. It reminded me how lucky we are to have such a gem of a campus in the state. I mean … seriously it is just gorgeous!!Touchdown JesusNotre DameAnd to make it even better, I stayed at the Morris Inn (located right on campus). Morris Inn LobbyThe amazing story about this hotel is that in 2012 it under went a massive renovation and expansion and the accommodations are stunning.  (It is hard to argue with a personal Keurig and Notre Dame robe in every room!)Morris RoomAnd might I add that every single person I encountered during my visit was kind, hospitable and as helpful as could be. I felt well-taken care of my entire time there – including when I got a personal note from the front desk welcoming me upon my arrival.

No matter when you visit the area, there are events to attend, restaurants to indulge in (Corndance anyone?) and sights to see. Be sure and Visit South Bend … You can even find some travel offers.

As for me, I’m already planning my next trip which will hopefully include a tail gate before a football game!
