South Bend Area
South Bend is part of St. Joseph County in northeast Indiana and the home to The University of Notre Dame. Formed in 1830, it was named for the St. Joseph River which flows through it toward Lake Michigan.
The area provides unique experiences through our arts, culture, heritage, academic, and athletic attractions. We would like to welcome you to enjoy everything in town to make your weekend one to remember. As you plan your trip to South Bend, please be sure to check with our community partners for your South Bend area resources and needs!
