If you live in, or happen to be visiting Chicago, keep in mind that another great little cool getaway is Michigan City, Indiana. It is an easy train ride or drive from Chicago. You can relax along the breezy lakeshore. Many Arizonans originally from Chicago, go to escape the desert heat and see “da Cubs” play.
Michigan City is located in LaPorte County, Indiana and is part of an area known as Michiana. For years it has been a Midwest family favorite getaway along the southeast shore of Lake Michigan. Michigan City has some of the finest inns, cottages, and vacation rentals, and also great restaurants, shopping, golfing, fishing charters, attractions and more.
