Enjoy South Bend!

IU South Bend is located minutes away from family fun and adventure. South Bend, Indiana is home to Indiana's oldest zoo, the Potawatomi Zoo, which opened in 1902 and is now home to over 400 animals. For the car lovers in the family, visit the Studebaker National Museum. Adventurers can go white water rafting, kayaking or tubing through downtown South Bend on the East Race Waterway.


The fun does not end after an afternoon of ice skating at the Compton Family Ice Arena. Take a tour of "The Bend's" hometown favorite treats manufacturer, the South Bend Chocolate factory. Learn all there is to know about the fine artistry of chocolate making while you visit their Chocolate Museum and taste their delightful treats.

Make it a weekend and enjoy South Bend!
