    Mishawaka has done an admirable job in creating a 1.7 mile series of concrete walkways and bike paths along the St. Joseph River. The parkway provides a safe and attractive access to the downtown area of Mishawaka as well as a place for joggers, bikers and walkers to enjoy that is attractive and free from traffic. There is also a bridge and series of fountains along the river.

    Mishawaka Central Park is less than two blocks from my late brother in laws house. It is the oldest park in Mishawaka. The town fathers and mothers of Mishawaka should be praised for their vision of developing such a large park along the Saint Joseph River. It is Mishawaka's oldest park. It contains playgrounds, lighted ball fields, picnic tables, some interesting walks, and even a canoe portage. Unfortunately portions of it have fallen into disrepair of late. Despite these limitations it still remains a jewel of a park and walking the park area brings back fond memories of my late brother in law and his family.

    Generously purportioned... The food and the waitstaff.
    When is a sports bar/ pub a little better than most?
    When it has interetingly costumed waitstaff and decent food.
    Tilted Kilt is an interesting addition to the standard pub grub/ sports bars that Mishawaka seems to have a few too many of.
    Definitely a step up the ladder from TGIF and Applebee's.
    For some reason I keep calling it the Twisted Kilt.
    The whole theme is just that , a little "Twisted"

    Favorite Dish: Got a nacho platter and it was pretty good, almost went for the ethnic version, but was happy with what I ordered. Lots of unusual beers to try, plenty of entertainment.
    Both the staff and customers were amusing.
    Didn't expect to see a lone male server in a Kilt, amongst the many "Lassies" but I guess that this is the 21st Century. Noticed he didnt wear a halter top though. That would have been a hoot.

Mishawaka Shopping

    A little bit of everything, and a lot of junk, all at "deep discount" type close out prices.
    Unusual items and some favorite big box staples all at relatively good prices.
    Not sure why it's called the Christmas Tree Store, but guess it would be a good place buy gifts for people who are expecting a gift when you really don't want to spend a lot of money on them.

    What to buy: A great place to drop $20 on yourself and not feel too bad about it.

    What to pay: I set a limit of $20-$30 at this type of store, though one could go wild and have lots of stuff to show for it.

Mishawaka Warnings and Dangers

  • by ashlarben Updated Apr 4, 2011

    If you have been drinking cleaning products, make sure to take precautions against falling in the river! Not only is there human waste in there, but there are water beasts who might get angry. These monsters often take the secret form of ducks. BEWARE. They will ask you for bread, which you can give them. But don't offer them gold, or they'll follow you home.

Mishawaka Tourist Traps

  • by ashlarben Written Jan 21, 2007

    On the corner of Main Street and Mishawaka Avenue, behind the gas station, is the Pleasureland Museum. BE AWARE. You will go in there looking for mini-golf and arcades, but they don't have any. Instead, all they have are free hugs. It's worth it for the hugs, and the occasional lemonade.

    Unique Suggestions: At least try one of their tanning beds, or get a massage in one of the photo booths.

    Fun Alternatives: Go to the gas station next door if you are looking for cookies or twizzlers, like I was.
