More than just a pretty place, you can find the perfect way to treat yourself on your next Indiana Dunes visit—you know, beyond the beautiful views, sandy beaches, and eclectic entertainment. Here, you can meet local farmers and pick-up fresh ingredients from an organic farm or farmer’s market. Sip on local wines and bring a few bottles home with you. Explore a curated collection of one-of-a-kind vintage items or search the racks at an upscale boutique. Between handmade goods and specialty shop finds, you might need to bring a bigger suitcase.
