Summer Activities

With our miles of beaches and countless fairs and festivals, Northwest Indiana can become an exciting and memorable summer vacation for the whole family! Find the Indiana Dunes, Albanese Candy Factory, Mascot Hall of Fame, Fair Oaks Farms and more along Lake Michigan's South Shore, just outside of Chicago.

Relax on the beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. Take a thrilling ride down a speed slide or a leisurely float along the lazy river at Deep River Waterpark. Climb, slide, jump and splash at Whoa Zone, a floating water park at Whihala Beach. Taste the food, listen to the music and enjoy the rides at the many summer festivals and fairs taking place. If sports are your area of interest, visit the SouthShore RailCats in Gary or the White Sox in Chicago.
