Known by many for it’s beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, the Indiana Dunes area is also home to some of the world’s largest lakeshore dunes, including Mount Baldy, a 125-foot “living dune” shaped by glacial sands. Covered in native flora and wild lupines, the Indiana Dunes is the best place to spot hundreds of migratory birds, explore Hoosier history, and revel in a landscape full of natural splendor.
