Unexpected Downtown Adventures
Most everyone knows the legacy of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. And yes, it is incredible to tour the campus and take the football tour, where you can tap the famous "Play Like a Champion Today" sign and step onto the famed field. But there are also many other ways to win the weekend in South Bend! During the summer, you can take on the challenge of the rapids of the East Race Waterway, America's first mandmade whitewater course. The South Bend Cubs promise a night of baseball fun at Four Winds Field at Covaleski Stadium. And it's not all sports in South Bend. You can check out the historic cars at the Studebaker Museum and tour the lovely Oliver Mansion. Each trip should include a stop at the South Bend Chocolate Company for a sweet treat and tour. South Bend is also home to performing arts venues, nightlife and local restaurants.
