A family reunion in South Bend has vibrant entertainment and fun-filled activities for everyone
Amidst the heart of the Great Lakes region located between Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus and Detroit, South Bend, Indiana is an inviting family-friendly reunion destination with entertainment and activities happening all through the year. If you’re looking for some sporting action, watch the South Bend Cubs play ball at Four Winds Field or flock to the iconic University of Notre Dame to watch a football game. Enjoy winter activities at Howard Park where all ages can go ice-skating on the 16,000 square foot ice trail before you huddle up in front of the fire pits to enjoy hot chocolate and snacks from the concession stand. Don’t miss visiting the 23-acre Potawatomi Zoo with over 500 ‘wild’ residents.
With humble beginnings as a duck pond, the zoo houses animals, birds and reptiles and other attractions like the Potawatomi Zoo Train, Endangered Species Carousel and Zoo Farm Feeding Area. For some high-energy family fun, head to Sky Zone, an all-walled indoor trampoline park where you can free-style jump and navigate the Ninja Warrior Course or take the SkyLadder challenge along with trampoline ziplining and dodgeball and jumping into foam cubes.
