Whether you visit for a Notre Dame football recreation (or different event), cross by means of on an Indiana street journey to/from Chicago, attend the US Senior Open golf event, or other purpose, I found some fairly shocking and enjoyable issues to do in South Bend you may take pleasure in.

Rising up in Miami Florida after which attending USC, South Bend Indiana—residence of the Notre Dame Preventing Irish—is a spot I long prevented.

However once I acquired one other alternative to discover South Bend, I gladly accepted.

College of Notre Dame

Going to South Bend Indiana without seeing Notre Dame is like visiting Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower.

The over 1,400 acre (double the unique measurement) campus is beautiful, spacious, and not crammed by tall buildings like most US universities. Notre Dame is at present the 11th wealthiest university on the planet, based mostly on their endowment.

The well-known golden dome building opened in 1879, after the prior important building was destroyed in a fireplace.
