Winter Around South Bend

Winter is a time for simple joys, like the soft quiet of a powdery hike or the restoring warmth of sipping hot chocolate once back inside. It’s for gliding along on ice skates or zipping down a tubing hill; for finding a cozy place to savor a meal or experiencing the electricity of a big game.
