What Bert Has To Say About South Bend-Mishawaka Metro Area


South Bend is located about 30 miles inland from where the Michigan-Indiana border intersects with the lower portion of Lake Michigan. The city has a well-balanced mix of industry, education, and cultural amenities, and has become an economic center for a large portion of northern Indiana and southern Michigan known locally as “Michiana.”
