Explore Indiana Dunes Country

Dig a little deeper

Beyond the beach, there’s a whole lot of extraordinary to experience. Uncover the juxtaposition of natural treasures, charming communities and unique culture that define Indiana Dunes Country. This is, after all, home to one of the world’s foremost Elvis festivals and the university where the study of ecology was literally founded. This is where huge balloons and rare butterflies share the same sky; where Teddy Roosevelt came to hunt and Orville Redenbacher discovered a passion for popcorn. Dig in the sand, and then dig a little deeper.
