The Golden Roamer: Visit South Bend Mishawaka’s Mobile Visitor Center

Sometimes The Bend comes to you.

The Golden Roamer — we christened her in 2014 — is a customized, 24-foot recreational vehicle that serves as our mobile visitor center. On the outside, you’ll see she’s wrapped with photos of The Bend’s attractions. Inside she’s complete with visitor guides, brochures, a television and more. She even has her own Twitter account:

You’ll occasionally find the Roamer parked outside the Inn at Saint Mary’s, visible to passersby as they get off Exit 77 of the Indiana Toll Road. But often the she’s on the move, welcoming visitors at community events or reaching out to them directly in other cities.
