With some awesome day trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to experience everything that Syracuse, 17 miles away, has to offer. Soak up the sights starting with Lake Wawasee, Wawasee Golf Club and Maxwelton Golf Club. Don’t miss Shipshewana either! Just 25 miles away, Blue Gate Theater, Shipshewana Flea Market and Shipshewana Auction and Flea Market are non-negotiable stops here.
