Welcome to the South Shore

Just a short 30-minute trip from Chicago's downtown, the South Shore of Lake Michigan is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the gracious hospitality of the Midwest.

Lounge on the majestic sand dunes on the beach or take a leisurely stroll along more than 60 miles of trails at the Indiana Dunes. Spend your time here bird watching, enjoy an afternoon on a charter boat on Lake Michigan or take in one of the many other things to do along the South Shore.

If it's excitement you like, head to one of our four lake-front casino boats for the thrill of gaming. Visit a waterpark for a day full of family fun. Try one of our many excellent restaurants, stay at one of our wonderful hotels or take in a show and enjoy top name entertainment.

Find your quiet getaway or exciting weekend, here in the South Shore.
