Must See and Do in the Indiana Dunes


The Indiana Dunes is so much more than sandy beaches and dunes.

Visitors can explore historic sites like the Bailly Homestead and Chellberg Farm, take a scenic drive along the Lake Michigan shore, and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and fishing.  Sample local cuisine and beverages at vintage eateries, or visit a European-style Market with a unique ambiance.  Chesterton’s European Market is open on Saturday selling foods, handcrafted jewelry, clothing, and art in addition to the produce straight from the farm.
