Rub shoulders with students and sports-lovers in South Bend

Home to America's iconic University of Notre Dame, South Bend is powered by a lively community of students and sports-lovers. Football is something of a religion, with Notre Dame raising a host of NFL champions. Visiting a loved one attending Notre Dame? Forget cramped dorm rooms. South Bend vacation rentals unlock access to a string of comfortable properties just steps from the university. Whether you want to shop on Eddy Street Commons, sip your way through local wineries, or day trip to Lake Michigan, South Bend is a great base for your Indiana vacation.

Things to do

Say hello to Touchdown Jesus

Whether you like football or not, gazing up at the Touchdown Jesus mural that watches over Notre Dame's 80,000-capacity stadium is a must. While it may look like a resurrected Christ, with a little imagination the mural bears an uncanny resemblance to a referee signaling a touchdown. While on campus, the main building's Golden Dome is definitely worth a visit, as is the beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The nearby Studebaker National Museum showcases a treasure trove of vintage cars, while kids will love getting face to face with flamingos, red pandas, and lions at the Potawatomi Zoo.

Activities

Discover iconic Notre Dame

South Bend is anchored by the legendary University of Notre Dame, which means no visit is complete without a stroll around the campus. You can even sign up for official tours led by local students. Just steps from the campus is upbeat Eddy Street Commons, South Bend's newest shopping, dining, and entertainment destination. If you want to venture further afield, the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail is calling. Known as the Napa Valley of the Midwest, it's dotted with boutique vineyards and bottles of bubbly waiting to be uncorked.

Weather

Fiery fall colors in ivy-strewn South Bend

Summer brings high season in South Bend, when Indiana is drenched in sunshine. The warm temperatures are perfect for sightseeing, sipping your way through the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail, and catching summer concerts in riverside Seitz Park. The whole town is in full swing holiday mode, so why not stay local with South Bend vacation rentals? If you want to beat the crowds, fall is a beautiful time to visit South Bend. Crowds taper off and the ivy-covered walls of the university's classic Gothic buildings explode in a sea of reds, yellows, and golds.
