Meanwhile, the Military Honor Park and Museum pays tribute to the armed service men and women who have long served the country.

The historic Morris Performing Arts Centre and Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Centre are both top picks when it comes to enjoying live performances in the city.

Those who want to explore the outdoors can enjoy biking by the river, golfing on one of South Bend’s courses or exploring the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Also worth a wander is the Shiojiri Niwa Japanese Gardens, a spectacular example of blooming beauty in the heart of South Bend.
