Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Mishawaka

Mishawaka is located in the geographical region known as Michiana, comprised of counties in northern Indiana and southern Michigan, and it is part of the South Bend metropolitan area. History and legacy are important to Mishawaka, which is named after a legendary Shawnee Indian princess of the same name. However, the city is also growing with the times, and the convergence of classic and modern can be seen in its buildings, its industry, and its cuisine.
