The golden dome, the grotto, the Touch Down Christ are an absolut sight. The atmosphere on game weekend is absolutely out of this world. Nothing to dislike.

If you're in South Bend, you obviously have to take a look at this campus. You can enjoy it by simply driving through it, but you would miss so much.

We came to Notre Dame during the fall to just browse the campus and the street trees with amazing buildings behind them were beautiful.

We have been to a lot of college campus sites, but this is undoubtedly the loveliest. Buildings range from new to ones with great historical value. Not to be missed
