About this trip idea

South Bend Mishawaka is home to 13 museums, all offering their own unique collections with art that spans centuries, including recent regional works; health education for children masked behind fun gross-outs and games; even an historic mansion left in perfect condition.  All this and more can be found amoungst the collections on display in our community.

Don't forget to take in a little performance art while you're here!  Catch a show at the highly-renowned South Bend Civic Theatre , or see what acts are making a stop in town at the Morris Performing Arts Center .  Outdoor performances and festivals pack community calendars across our area all summer long, celebrating everything from varying ethnicities found in our community, to art, music, history and more.

The South Bend Foodie Trail is your one-stop-shop for some of the best dining establishments in our county, as chosen by the editors at Midwest Living magazine, including many diverse culinary offerings.  Explore restaurants offering freshly made sushi; schnitzels true to the owner's Austrian roots; Celtic dishes served in the warmth of a classic public house, and many others that celebrate the varying heritages found in our community.
