Historic Indiana Dunes

The 15-mile Lake Michigan beach coastline is a real gem. But visitors are often surprised to discover the treasures that lie just beyond the sandy shore. To get the full Indiana Dunes Country experience, shake off the sand and head to any number of historic attractions waiting for you in our communities. Historic sites, the 1933 “Century of Progress” homes, charming historic Chesterton, and the beautiful Memorial Opera House—a memorial to Civil War veterans built in 1893—to name a few.
