Michigan City, Indiana

Michigan City dates back to 1830, when a real estate speculator, Isaac C. Elston, purchased 160 acres of land. In the six years that followed, the city grew to encompass 15 square miles, had 10 hotels, a commercial district and more than 1,500 residents.

In the many years since the city's incorporation in 1836, Michigan City has grown to be a large, vibrant city. Attracting thousands of visitors to the Indiana Dunes and the Lake Michigan shoreline, this lakeside city boasts many attractions, including Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets, Washington Park and Zoo, Blue Chip Casino, Hotel and Spa, and Lubeznik Center for the Arts.

Visitors can choose from a variety of lodging options, including hotels, cabins, inns and campgrounds. A multitude of dining options is also available, such as fine dining, lakefront restaurants, ethnic offerings, breweries and popular national chain restaurants, as well as local favorites.

Michigan City is home to many events and festivals. Enjoy the Super Boat Grand Prix at the Great Lakes Fest or the work of fine artists and crafts people at the Lakefront Art Festival in August. Participate in a fishing tournament or listen to the weekly summer municipal band concerts in Washington Park. With the abundance of sporting, entertainment, historical, shopping and fine arts options available in Michigan City, visitors are sure to find the perfect way to enjoy their stay.
