I lived in South Bend for over 10 years. I lived in the suburbs on the south side. The south side is a nice part of town, gives you a suburban feel to it, nothing really wealthy or high class down there, but the south side is pretty safe, not much crime or bad areas down there. Once you are in downtown and start to go west, that's where you get into some of the nastier neighborhoods, basically there isn't much of anything west of Main Street South Bend, besides the Oriville Museum and the Studebaker Museum.

The north side is the wealthy side. Several large and well off suburban neighborhoods. You're close to Notre Dame and St. Mary's, also close to the huge shopping district in Mishawaka and Granger. Like I said, most of the activity and good safer places are anything east of Main Street in South Bend.

I agree for the most part. If you go far enough west, out of south bend, there are some nice neighborhoods as well. But those are definitely more suburban.
