Welcome to South Bend, Indiana!
The citizens of South Bend thank you for visiting this site and hope that we can entice you to visit us!
We’re understandably proud of our city – a city in north central Indiana with a rich history of commerce,
natural beauty, sports and entertainment. There truly is something for everyone.
With more than 107,000 citizens, we think we’re a “right size” town -- not too big and not too small.
And for our size, we have an abundance of sights and activities that not many cities can boast!
Here are some links that give you just a sample of what we have to offer:
College Football Hall of Fame
East Race Waterway
Healthworks! Kids Museum
Military Honor Park
Morris Performing Arts Center
Northern Indiana Center for History
Potawatomi Greenhouse and Conservatory
St. Joseph County Parks
The Silver Hawks - Stanley Coveleski Regional Baseball Stadium
South Bend Chocolate Company
South Bend Civic Theatre
South Bend Parks
South Bend Regional Museum of Art
South Bend Symphony Orchestra
Studebaker National Museum
University of Notre Dame
We’re a family-friendly town of 42,908 households, of which 30.5% have children under the age of 18
living with them. That’s one reason we have such a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.
Whether you want to try your hand at kayaking in the first artificial whitewater course in
North America (one of only six in the world!), ride the new train at the zoo that houses
endangered species such as tiger, chimpanzee, snow leopard and lemurs, take in a game
with South Bend’s minor league baseball team, or prefer to sample our fine restaurants – and
famous chocolate treats! – we’re here for you.
