With some terrific day trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to enjoy everything that Elkhart, 17 miles away, has to offer. Concord Mall ought to be at the top of your list here. The Lerner and Wellfield Botanic Gardens are awesome attractions too. Syracuse is another terrific option. It’s 25 miles away and offers a range of interesting things to do. Lake Wawasee, Wawasee Golf Club and Maxwelton Golf Club are just the start.
