Posted on December 23, 2022 by Dina Miller
The holidays are nearly over, but there is still plenty to do in northern Indiana. There are some wonderful winter activities that you need to do as soon as the weather is right (because it might change tomorrow!). There are also traditional events that happen, and we want to make sure you get them on your calendar. Here's our Top 10 list of winter activities, everything from ice to the warm theatre.
Michigan City’s Lakefront – Beaches, Dining and a Zoo Too!
A glorious stretch of Lake Michigan sets the vibe for beachside fun and lots of nearby activities in energetic Michigan City, which hugs the shoreline. The city’s iconic lighthouse seems to stand guard over swimmers and sunbathers who head for wide, sandy Washington Park Beach and perhaps a picnic in the shady park itself. Nearby the Indiana Dunes invite exploring.
Boats bob in the marina, and visitors often board a charter to fish for big catches. Nearby restaurants offer an array of dining options. Washington Park Zoo, built on a sand dune, is home to everything from lions and tigers to alligators and bald eagles, plus a petting barn. Visitors love a see-through tunnel where they can watch otters swim.
