Beaches & Beyond

We’re more than just a pretty place. We’re 9,000 years of indigenous culture. A home away from home for centuries of European immigrants. An emblem of pioneering spirit and a seat of industrial innovation. We’ve been shaped by glaciers and defined by our dunes, but what you’ll find here on the south shore of Lake Michigan is beyond anything you could imagine. Stunning scenery, tight-knit communities, and thousands of acres of adventure-filled wilderness. You may not know this version of Indiana Dunes Country, but you will soon.
