Lakefront

Beverly Shores & Lakefront Communities

Four unique communities, one fantastic view. These lakefront communities offer world-renowned architecture, stunning beaches, and endless trails along the shore of Lake Michigan.

Beverly Shores

Beverly Shores is an architectural feat that juxtaposes the rough wildness of the Lake Michigan shore against some of America’s most famous architectural landmarks. Known as the five Century of Progress Homes, these feats of contemporary design and technology were built to wow audiences at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. They have stood the test of time, having been transported to Beverly Shores by barge to establish a resort community.

Today, people can drive or walk along Lake Front Drive to see the homes’ exteriors year-round, several of which are being restored. Lake Front Drive is a great place to view the lake during the summer, see the changing leaves during the fall, and view the glassy shelf ice during the winter. Surrounded by the Indiana Dunes National Park, it’s also home to the Lake View Picnic AreaGreat Marsh Trail, and Depot Museum and Art Gallery.

 

Dune Acres

Dune Acres is located right on the shore of Lake Michigan, surrounded by the wooded beauty of the National Park. Conjure up images of frisbees, flip-flops, and beachside cookouts, and you’ll get an idea of what life is like.

Ogden Dunes

Ogden Dunes began life as a resort community. Once home to the highest ski jump in the U.S.A., it was taken down in 1932. The town’s charm has long outlasted fairweather pursuits, and Ogden Dunes has become one of the region’s most upscale communities for year-round residents.

The Pines

The Pines, with its mid-century ambiance, is a tiny borough just outside Michigan City. Featuring well-preserved motor lodges straight out of the 50s, visiting here is like taking a trip back in time.
