I grew up roughly half an hour away from Mishawaka and also lived there for two years as an adult so I have some experience with the area. The shopping is fantastic and that's about the only good thing I can say. There are many decent hotel and restaurant options for people who are traveling.

The apartments are extremely overpriced for what they are and have largely negative reviews. Crime rates have gone up in recent years. Many rich people like to shop in this area and they tend to be confrontational and rude.
