Indiana county number 20

Elkhart County is a county located in the U.S. state of Indiana. Much of the county is located in the Elkhart-Goshen Metropolitan Statistical Area, which in turn is part of the South Bend-Elkhart-Mishawaka Combined Statistical Area. As of 2007, the county's population was 197,942.

Elkhart County is also located in the Northern Indiana region known as Michiana, 20 miles (32 km) east of South Bend, 110 miles (180 km) east of Chicago, and 150 miles (240 km) north of Indianapolis. The area is playfully referred to by locals as the recreation vehicle (RV) capital of the world and is known for its sizable Amish population.[1] For the latter reason, the county teams up with neighboring LaGrange County to promote tourism by referring to the area as Northern Indiana Amish Country.[2] The county seat is Goshen.
