WELCOME TO THE WESTERN GATEWAY TO THE INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL PARK.

Be safe and active in 20 miles of beautifully scenic hiking and biking trails that connect Gary’s Miller Beach downtown,  to Lake Michigan, historic places and architecture, Marquette Park, and to the Indiana Dunes National Park’s western visitor center, the Paul H Douglas Center.

Be inspired by five miles of sugar sand beach, at the southernmost point of Lake Michigan.

Treat yourself in our walkable downtown with its unique shops, restaurants, and street murals. We’re just 35 miles from the Chicago Loop with our own South Shore Line stop.
