The good citizens of Elkhart County didn't want their community to be a refuge for disreputable types from Chicago, so they contstructed this booth in the center of Goshen to monitor traffic along U.S. 33, (the Lincoln Highway), which at that time was one of the most important east-way thoroughfares across the U.S.more

UPDATE: Both Alley Oops locations have closed. The restaurant has sadly gone out of business. Alley Oops started many years ago in Elkhart at Pierre Moran Mall and added a second location in South Bend in Scottsdale Mall. Ironically, neither of these malls exist anymore. But Alley Oops has two new locations, one in Elkhart and one on the southeast...more
Though you can order more than just pizza, Brunos is famous for its huge, filling pies. The local chain has spread quickly around the area over the past few years and now includes two locations in Goshen. They offer a choice of carry out or delivery and offer limited dine-in seating. And let me tell you, when they say the 24" pizza feeds 10-12...more
Hacienda has been a local favorite for years, ever since someone decided to convert an old home in Mishawaka to a mexican restaurant in 1978. Since then they've added 12 locations (that have survived. Somehow 2 locations in Fort Wayne couldn't survive more than 2 years). The atmosphere is whimsical, if not a bit over the top and the restaurant...more
Dandino's has been in the Goshen area for as long as I can remember. Though the restaurant is nothing special, they must be doing something right. In my opinion, it is overpriced. Dandino's specializes in steaks and some seafood such as shrimp. Parking can sometimes be hard to come by but don't let the bland design on the outside fool you. The...more
Most people have heard of Applebees I'm sure. This one is no different than any others. The food isn't great but it's not horrible either. This was the first of the national chain restaurants Goshen got (that wasn't fast food that is). And since it remains one of the few, this place is packed on weekends. If you don't want to wait, try to go before...more
Passing through Goshen, I happened across this really quite good lunch place near the courthouse square. Fresh wholesome food served cheefully in a historically interesting atmosphere: quiches, salads, thick soups, shepherd's pie, hots teas and coffee, delicious desserts. The name of the place is taken from a fun Italian movie made about 20 years...more
The Electric Brew in downtown Goshen opened in April 1996 and has become one of the most popular destinations in town for the college crowd. The story of how the Electric Brew came to be is rather interesting. It was started by a Goshen College student and her husband when she graduated in 1995. Originally from Oregon, she felt Goshen really needed...more
Arrive early and get a great spot. Air show starts at 12:00 in the afternoon and the airport quickly gets crowded. Arriving early will secure you a great seat and time to shop for any snacks or drinks, Be sure to bring a blanket or chairs to sit. (they are not provided) Some type of lighting is always recommended when walking in big crowds....more

Goshen does have a small municipal airport on the southeast edge of town but you can't catch flights into there. The closest airport with commercial service is South Bend Regional Airport, a good 45 minute to an hour drive. Amtrak goes through Goshen but doesn't stop here. I know it used to stop nearby in Elkhart. But you may have to take it to South Bend to get to Goshen. And Greyhound buses don'tcome close to Goshen either.
Thus, you will be coming to Goshen by car. Two major state highways run right through downtown, State Road 15 and U.S. 33. From Fort Wayne, just follow U.S. 33 straight into town. From areas east and west, follow U.S. 20 until you hit State Road 15 if coming from the east or U.S. 33 if coming from the west and follow those south to town. You can also take the Indiana Toll Road (I-80/90) to the State Road 15 Bristol/Goshen exit. The bottom line is, Goshen is quite easy to get to.
Neptune was dedicated in 1912 as a gift to the city by Greek immigrant James Polezoes. Arriving in the United States in 1901, Polezoes settled in Goshen in 1910 where he sold candy, ice cream and owned a downtown theatre. The 6 foot - 10 inch bronze over lead and zinc statue was his way of thanking his adopted home for helping him achieve the American Dream.
Favorite thing: Across America, Greek Revival Architecture from the 1830s to the 1850s expressed early America's desire to model itself upon the modest democracy of ancient Athens. Small, simple, and noble, this courthouse annex in Goshen is a reminder of the far-away time before the United States became a empire.
