The snow is here! It’s time to get outside and play

A nice blanket of snow is now covering Indiana Dunes Country. Do you know what that means?

It means the time is right for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and other winter fun at The Indiana Dunes and surrounding areas. Skiing enthusiasts will find miles of trails through a variety of terrain. Just be sure to bring your own skis (or snowshoes).

Among my favorite spots for cross-country skiing are Taltree Arboretum and Sunset Hill Farm County Park in Valparaiso; Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve in Chesterton; and these Indiana Dunes sites: Indiana Dunes State Park and the Indiana Dunes National Park’s Glenwood Dunes and Tolleston Dunes trails.

For more information about cross-country skiing, as well as sledding, snowshoeing, ice rinks and ice fishing, check out Indiana Dunes Tourism’s new winter page here.

Even if you’re not looking for strenuous winter fun, this is a great time for great views. At any of the sites along Lake Michigan, you can see beautiful shelf ice on the lakeshore.

And when you’re done outside, be sure to warm up at one of Indiana Dunes Country’s restaurants or coffee shops here.
