Welcome to the South Shore

Along Lake Michigan

Along the southern shores of Lake Michigan sits the South Shore's diverse landscapes and a region that is culturally varied and steeped in history and tradition.

A short trip from Chicago and other major Midwestern cities, the South Shore is the perfect place for your quiet escape or exciting weekend.

Eat your heart out at one of our events and festivals. Sip on craft beers made right here in the Midwest. Splash at Mother Nature's very own waterpark - the Indiana Dunes. Hike and bike our trails. Sleep under the stars at local campgrounds. It's summer in the South Shore - there's something for you.
