A Little Something for Everyone

From growing up in a small town of Elkhart County to attending college in St. Joseph County, the South Bend - Elkhart Region has been the place I call home. Currently I am a student at Saint Mary's College and the reigning Miss Nappanee Apple Blossom Queen of the Nappanee Apple Festival. The Nappanee Apple Festival is home to Indiana’s largest 7-foot baked apple pie that comes out of the oven just in time to kick off the fun! The festival attracts over 80,000 people annually and showcases over 150 exhibitors, carnival rides, apple peeling and pie-eating contests, and more.

Whether you are seeking a place of peace and tranquility in a small town like Nappanee or somewhere with a larger and more vibrant atmosphere, the South Bend - Elkhart Region has got you! South Bend is the fourth largest city in Indiana and is home to the Fighting Irish football games, Broadway performances at the Morris, and much more.
