Michiana Adventure Guide

This guide is a resource for finding outdoor adventure opportunities in and around South Bend, Indiana. All of the destinations are within a four hour driving radius of the city. Included is as much logistical information I could think of to make planning a trip easier. This is a continuous work in progress. If you have ideas or would like to contribute some writings to the guide, please let me know.
