Michiana Shores

Come enjoy Indiana and Michigan lake life in the town that offers the best of both states.

The Michiana Shores beach community was developed in the 1930s, originally as a log cabin town for vacationers. Today, its proximity to Chicago continues to make it a popular destination for weekend vacationers.

Michiana Shores rightfully gets its name from the Michiana region, located along the Michigan-Indiana border. The town is adjacent to Michiana, Michigan, and also neighbors Long Beach, Indiana.

Among the community’s housing options are wooded retreats, property on large lots, vintage cottages, and land to build the ultimate dream home.

The Michigan City Transit runs a local bus route that connects neighboring Long Beach to Michigan City. Amtrak and the South Shore Line both offer daily service from nearby Michigan City to Chicago.
