Sports & Recreation

Lake Michigan and the beaches along the South Shore offer visitors an array of outdoor sport including beach volleyball, windsurfing, boating and jet skiing.

Baseball fans don't have to go to a major league field to catch a game. Visit Railcats Stadium in Gary or Oil City Stadium in Whiting and enjoy independent baseball players hungry to make it to the majors.

No matter your game, the South Shore will help your inner athlete come out to play!
