The Region

Northwest Indiana is known as "Da Region." It is the section of the Chicago metropolitan area that overflows past the Indiana border. The Region is a cultural "melting pot" creating a very diverse and unique place that is different by far than any other location in Indiana.

Northwest Indiana is comprised of Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton and Jasper counties in Indiana. This region neighbors Lake Michigan and is part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Northwest Indiana is the state's second largest urban area after the Indianapolis metropolitan area.
