It ranges from great grocery stores, such as, Martins, to great restaurants, like, Apple bees, Fridays, Texas Roadhouse, Logan's Roadhouse, and good clothing stores, such as, Kohls, TJ Max, Target, and DSW. This is great area to live if like being close to surrounding schools. There is also a Movies 16, a bowling alley, and a our local minor league baseball team, the South Bend Cubs.

The area I live is the "country" outside of the city. South Bend is expanding so new businesses are beginning to open around the area. Yet, it is still a very nice area because of the people and minimal to no crime or conflicts.
I live in South Bend, Indiana, and I have lived here my entire life. The businesses in this town are always conveniently located and plentiful. You can find a quality business for whatever you need around every corner. I have never had a problem with the services at any local business.
