Good place to stay between Chicago and South Bend?


Recommended Posts

No where. Even Michigan city being a tourist town has a giant coal plant and is not much fun. Best to stay in Chicago

 

Would it suffice for a guy and his family who are just looking for a relatively safe and inexpensive place to lay their heads...?

Yeah for sure, just depends what your looking for. A family event Michigan City is probably a good bet. Also, what another poster mentioned Benton Harbor. Anywhere really in Western Michigan would suffice for whatever anyone is looking for in the event. Closest though is probably Michigan City.

Valparaiso and Chesterton are both fine, and almost directly between SB and Chicago. Portage is pretty OK too but that's a little further out from SB.

 

Edit - New Buffalo is very nice too, too chilly for the lake right now but good food, good bars, and about 45 min from campus.

Agree with this post the most. We've also had good luck staying in Merrillville. I don't think they jack up the rates on ND game weekends, either, but don't hold me to that.
