Home cooked meals are what bring Americans together and that is exactly what the editors of Midwest Living Magazine, along with the Steuben County Tourism Bureau, are highlighting in the brochure, “Northern Indiana Lakes Country Cuisine.” Together, these two companies have created a brochure made of the locally owned restaurants along The Food Trail in Steuben County that will invite visitors to sample local cuisine, like Italian, steak and seafood. The Food Trail is made up of eight locally owned waterfront restaurants, all which offer a variety of food that is sure to fill up anyone. This trail is designed to highlight locally owned restaurants that are staples of the Steuben County community, allowing multiple options to visitors looking to dine out. This brochure celebrates the hard work of the owners and creates a legacy for our youth to continue enjoying and supporting local restaurants instead of chain restaurants.
