About Michigan City, Indiana

Founded in 1830, Michigan City has grown a lot since its small town beginnings.

It's now a vibrant and exciting city, but it hasn’t lost its small town charm. It's not too busy, so it's a great place to explore and discover new things while enjoying all the amenities it has to offer.

If you're around on a Thursday evening, head to the Guy F Foreman Amphitheater in Washington Park – the city's municipal band plays a free concert, and there's nothing quite like it.

Plans to revitalize the city are well underway, so it's a great time to go! There are plenty of entertaining options, but the masses of tourists haven't realized what a great destination it is. Beat the rush and book your trip today!

What to do in Michigan City, Indiana

If you're traveling with kids, a trip to the zoo is a must! You'll see everything from Bengal tigers to otters and monkeys. The zoo will soon be home to a pride of lions, too!

Head to the beach for a day of relaxation and to soak up the sun. The waters are shallow so the kids will be fine, and there's usually a lifeguard on hand keeping an eye on things.

Fancy a bit of adventure? Head to the Blue Chip Casino – it's a riverboat where you can enjoy a hand of poker or a spin of the roulette wheel. Probably best enjoyed without the kids, though.

One of the best things to do is stroll along the pier and head to the Old Lighthouse Museum – you'll find out so much about the area, and maybe even catch a spectacular sunset.
