Elkhart’s RiverWalk is great for leisurely morning strolls, late afternoon jogs or just plain meandering. It’s pet friendly, lined with parks and dotted with terraces and footbridges – with a little bit of art and architecture thrown in. You might treat yourself to an iced coffee and a SugaRush cupcake on the outdoor deck at b on the River or a late-day meal with wine al fresco at nearby McCarthy’s. Locals use both as an excuse to leave the office on summer afternoons.
