CULVER IN MARSHALL COUNTY: LAKESIDE CHARM IN NORTHERN INDIANA

How many courses offer a links-style design on the front nine, with a more traditional feel on the back nine? Mystic Hills Golf Club, on the edge of Lake Maxinkuckee in southern Marshall County, is unique. So are Marshall County's other offerings that can fill a weekend, and even a week.

The Town of Culver often is referred to as the "Cape Cod of the Midwest," featuring more than a dozen restaurants like the Edgewater Grille, with rough-hewn floors, boats hanging from the ceiling and a front row seat on the lake; and the Corndance Café, with a warm, intimate atmosphere and always changing gourmet menu - you can even enjoy a Bison steak grown on the chef's farm. Before hitting the links, for breakfast try the sinful French Toast at Cafe Max, a hang-out for all the locals, or grab a quick cup of gourmet coffee at The Culver Coffee Company.

The unique shops on Culver's Main Street offer extensive shopping options. Be sure to visit The Painter and the Poet gallery, and also plan to spend time walking the 1600-acre campus of the Culver Academy, home to the Culver Military Academy, the Culver Girls Academy and of course the famous Black Horse Troop. It's the ideal way to unwind among spectacular architecture from another time - after a great round of golf and before enjoying a meal in downtown Culver.

Marshall County offers several trails to get you out and around the area: the new Pete Dye Golf Trail, Indiana's first :Barn Quilt Trail," Northern Indiana's Art & Earth Trail, and the Bike Trail offer sightseeing, shopping and activity for everyone. The Barn Quilt and Bike Trails take you on a stress-free trip through the picturesque rolling countryside, where in the fall the maple trees form a red-and-orange canopy over the easy-to-follow route highlighted by the one-of-a-kind quilt patterns on more than 50 barns. The Art & Earth Trail is a guide to the farm stands and many artisans that offer their products for you to purchase.

The Marshall County Blueberry Festival, held in Plymouth, is among the Midwest's largest festivals and a must visit[157] over Labor Day. Plymouth also offers the U.S. Golf Academy. No matter the time of year you visit, there is plenty to enjoy in Marshall County.
