City on the Go

Common Good. Uncommonly Great.
Goshen is the vibrant center to Northern Indiana’s Heritage Trail. Look at a map and you’ll see that almost all roads lead to this varied collection of beautifully restored turn-of-the-century buildings and tidy Victorian homes. It’s also a magnet for young, creative entrepreneurs and is laced with eclectic shops, specialty boutiques and cozy cafés set throughout the historic downtown. Just outside of town, walking and biking paths fan out along the Maple City Greenway and the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.
