About this trip idea

Start your retreat in South Bend Mishawaka by strolling the serene paths of the Shiojiri Niwa Japanese Garden  near downtown Mishawaka.  Part of the Mishawaka parks system, Shiojiri Niwa represents the sister-city relationship between Mishawaka and Shiojiri City, Nagano Prefuncture, Japan.  The gardens feature bridges, beautiful plant life and plenty of spots to pause and reflect.  

South Bend's Oliver Inn Bed & Breakfast , featured in an IndyStar article offering up "drivable" romantic getaway destinations, offers a relaxing spot to rest while in town.  The bed and breakfast, a former private residence of members of the Oliver family, features nine rooms including the secluded carriage house, not to mention a fresh homemade breakfast is served every morning.  Just steps from dining, shopping and museums, this bed and breakfast offers convenience and retreat at the same time.

No trip to South Bend Mishawaka would be complete without a meal at the 18-time AAA Four Diamond Award winning restaurant, LaSalle Grill .  With an extensive wine list, menu featuring artfully crafted plates, and desserts that are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth, this long-standing eatery will send you off feeling the love.
