Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve

A living museum of delicate ecosystems.

Reviewed By bosoxgirl79 - Boston, Massachusetts

I heard about this place and decided to bring my girls for a visit on their first day of summer break. What a special place! We really loved exploring the gardens and the different sculptures and art pieces. Peaceful hiking along the trails - especially nice to be able to hike along the river. My girls really enjoyed the nature center and wanted to stay and keep exploring long after I was ready to go! So glad we made the trip. We ended up buying a membership and signing up the kids for one of their summer art camps - SO happy we did that! The staff was amazing and the girls had such a good time. Already planning for camp again next year!

Basilica of the Sacred Heart

Reviewed By lsulliv4 - South Bend, Indiana

Beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame University. Itaianate (actually, Italian) frescoes, extraordinary stained glass windows created by an order of French nuns, ornate appointments but not overdone. Elegant. Interesting array of sculptures/paintings/relic. Lots of back stories. Home of our Lady's Chapel, where Notre Dame football players gather for prayer and blessing before every home game.

Wakarusa Dime Store

Reviewed By JH3221 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

This is basically a candy store located in what appears to be an old house. They have a variety of items. Items they are are things such as old style candy, local candy, unique candy, etc. They even have bulk bins for various jelly beans and taffy candies. It was a pretty neat little store and I would definitely go back.

What a great value for the movies. Cheap ticket prices. Clean theater. Current movie. Even the popcorn and refreshments are less expensive. All in a quaint town with shopping/restaurants in walking distance. Take a walk along the river walk after your movie.

University of Notre Dame

Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

Wonderful campus, great staff to organize the tours (helen) and nice bookstore. A bit too much junk in the bookstore and a bit overpriced, but I guess that's the way it is.
