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.


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.
