Mishawaka, Indiana, is a growing commercial city in Northern Indiana, located next to South Bend. Mishawaka, the Princess City, lies nestled along the meandering path of the St. Joseph River. Population growth, business expansion and record-breaking new construction tell us that people want to live, work, raise their families and retire in Mishawaka. Community pride is an essential part of life in the Princess City. The quality of life that generates this community pride comes from many sources.
Mishawaka ranks as the 17th largest city in the state of Indiana surpassing the cities of Kokomo and Columbus. Unlike many communities, Mishawaka has consistently grown in population, capital investment and assessed value for several years.
Construction and growth are not all that make a city great, of course. Not only is Mishawaka home to Bethel College, but it is also home to AM General's Hummer Plant, a beautiful system of parks and a myriad of cultural opportunities.
The greater metropolitan area includes 250,000 residents, five colleges (including the University of Notre Dame), the second largest shopping district in the state of Indiana, 15,000 businesses, 50 parks, and Mishawaka's own renovated, 3-mile Riverwalk development.
