Experience The Gateway Mile
Downtown Elkhart offers something for everyone: art, recreation, historic homes, entrepreneurial spirit. Every trip down Main Street provides a gateway for discovery.
Right now, our business people are refreshing the city's landscape in historic downtown buildings. Residents embrace the urban experience in second-story spaces and nearby neighborhoods. We're working collaboratively to spark ideas - our Gateway Mile Loan Fund offers unique opportunities for potential investors. And Elkhart's festivals and events reflect our creative energy, blending volunteer effort and community pride.
Whether you are looking for a night on the town, a family activity at the NIBCO Ice and Water Park, a picnic at Wellfield Gardens, or a world-class performance at the Lerner Theatre, the Gateway Mile delivers. Downtown Elkhart is bustling with unique restaurants, coffee houses and brewpubs, arts and entertainment venues, and university classes teaching everything from poetry to physics.
Experience something new every week in our dynamic downtown community.
