National Park
“If you want a great day trip option in the area to spend time outdoors, I recommend this place, as it has beautiful scenery and perfect for picnics. Note: The national lakeshore part of Indiana Dunes is free--the state park portion is not. Also note: it is in Eastern time zone and traffic coming back from here is often slow.”

“This is the non-smoking alternative to The Flamingo...I think the food here is top notch..more laid back, but very good and also has a full bar. Close to the beach (hence the name, duh!!!)...”

Park
“This is a quick, 11 mile drive straight up to the north terminus of IN 49. Right at the southern tip of Lake Michigan, this is my favorite place to go for the beach and for the trails! There are miles of wide, sandy beach flanked by beautiful sand dunes, some of which guests are allowed to climb. Turn right at the roundabout to visit the Nature Center. From the Nature Center (indoor restroom) you can access Trails 7, 8, 9, and 10. If you are feeling especially energetic, take the 3 Dune Challenge and scale the three tallest sand dunes in the State Park! Or you can continue on to Trail 9 and 10 trailheads at Wilson Shelter (water fountain in warmer months and portapotty year round). From Trail 9, known as The Ridge, you can look to the north over majestic Lake Michigan, and to the south over the oak savannah. Parking fees: $7 for Indiana residents, $12 for out-of-state residents.”

“The generous Lobster Rolls are to die for here, but the whole menu is delightful at this charming nautically-inspired eatery. A great spot for brunch on the weekends. Dine inside (it's so cute!) or have Chef Angela pack a delicious lunch box to take to the beach! ”
