Local Attractions

The Indiana sand dunes are a treasure trove of nature featuring more than 1,100 flowering plant species and ferns as well as more than 350 species of birds, including breeding grounds for the great blue heron. The significance of the diversity of nature found nationally was recognized nationally in 1899, and so began the dunes story to become Indiana’s first official National Park.

In the 1950s, a desire to maximize economic development through a "Port of Indiana" spurred a new interest in preservation. Located along the southern tip of Lake Michigan, the park borders 15 non-contiguous miles of beach along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. The National Park Service has now acquired over 95% of the property within the boundaries of the park for preservation purposes

The Indiana Dunes attracts millions of visitors each year. While best known for its world-class beaches, the Indiana Dunes and its surrounding areas offer so much more. World-class cuisine, breathtaking scenery, and eclectic nightlife.
