Destinations / North America

South Bend is a city in Indiana, home to Notre Dame University and once a major manufacturing area in the United States. The city has a lot of history, although it is often remembered only for being home to Notre Dame. Here’s how you can enjoy the city for less than $100.

 

Get an early start to your day by heading to Curve Cafe for breakfast. Enjoy coffee and eggs with fries, bacon and sausage or turkey ($8.45)

 

Spend three hours at Notre Dame University touring the campus. This school has a lot of notable landmarks and rich history, so much that you could make a day of touring campus.

 

Some landmarks to visit while on the campus are the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, a reproduction of the shrine in France, the World Life Mural (a.k.a. “Touchdown Jesus”), the Golden Dome and the famous Notre Dame Stadium. You may request a tour ahead of time for more in-depth information on what you see.

 

At noon, head to the Legends of Notre Dame to enjoy the school cuisine for lunch. Order an Irish whiskey burger and your choice of a side and a beer while enjoying your surroundings.

 

Head to the Studebaker National Museum to learn about the automotive world in South Bend, and The History Museum to learn about the region’s heritage through exhibits and collections. You can purchase a ticket for both sites at a cost of $15.

 

Head to the Potawatomi Zoo to interact with the animals until closing.

 

For dinner, grab a plate of chicken scampi and a glass of wine at Tippecanoe ($40)

 

End your day at the River Lights and watch the vibrant lights and colors dance over the St. Joseph River.
