It’s fun to spend time in the city as well as the country.  And Downtown Elkhart is a vibrant city with a heart for a good time. I like to walk along the RiverWalk and a stop at a locally owned restaurant or bistro or grab a cup of coffee at the Daily Grind.

I also enjoy sampling Stirred’s signature martini’s, or craft beers at Harrison’s Landing. Then there’s terrific not-to-be-missed museums. Sundays are free admission at the Midwest Museum of American Art - an outstanding collection of works by America’s masters. Any day this gem is well worth the small price of admission.  It’s just across the street from the grandly restored Lerner Theatre where you can catch exciting live entertainment and theatre. Inside and out- this place is fabulous.

Ruthmere house museum also offers free Sundays beginning April. Don’t miss seeing this magnificent  mansion and get a look at the life of the rich in the early 1900’s. Plus there’s events and live performances taking place throughout the year. See a show, stroll Wellfield Botanic Gardens, visit a museum, grab a bite, sip a drink, and enjoy life all within easy walking distance in downtown Elkhart.
