Just a short 30-minute trip from Chicago's downtown, the South Shore is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the gracious hospitality of the Midwest.
Explore the beaches, trails, marshes, bogs, prairies and dunes at one of our county, state or national parks. View artwork from local and nationally known artists. Feel the excitement of a live performance or find your next favorite craft beer or Indiana wine. Splash at the waterparks, grab your ice-skates or pick apples creating memories with family and friends.
If the chilly air sends you indoors, be sure to try your luck at one of our four lakefront casinos; enjoy dinner and a show or visit one of the region's microbreweries to find your favorite craft beer.
