Blastcamp Paintball & Airsoft

Built on a former army base with 28 acres of bunkers, trenches, buildings, and radar towers, this is hands-down the best paintball range in the Chicagoland area. There’s open play on weekends, and during the week groups can make reservations and rent the whole place for a private game.

From Logs to Lustrons: 150 Years of Indiana Dunes Architectural History

The 2018 Logs to Lustrons Tour by Indiana Landmarks marked my first expedition across Indiana Dunes Country since I moved here in January. The Indiana Dunes area is known for the Century of Progress homes built along the Lake Michigan coast in 1933 after the Chicago World’s Fair. You definitely can’t miss the brightest of them, the pink “Flamingo” house, as your cruise along the beach between Porter and Beverly Shores. Beyond this iconic site, I had no idea just how much was waiting to be discovered at the Indiana Dunes.
