Michiana is the southernmost town of Harbor Country and a popular vacation destination for Chicagoans.
Approximately 67 miles from downtown Chicago, the Village of Michiana is a quiet town bordering two states: Michigan and Indiana. Charming log cabins and quaint cottages line the winding roads, and many of these historic homes date back to the 1920s, serving as evidence of Michiana’s rich history. Waterfront homes offer vistas and sounds of Lake Michigan’s surf and are comfortably nestled along the shores of the idyllic community.
Although Michiana’s main draw is its huge expanse of beach, diverse local businesses add flavor to this South Bend community. Every year, restaurants participate in the Taste of Michiana festival, which offers visitors and residents food and drink tastings from regionally-renowned and community-revered establishments. Annual festivals such as the Michiana Renaissance Festival bring together the community and showcase Michiana’s eclectic and unique offerings.
Michiana is equidistant from New Buffalo, MI, and Michigan City, IN, which offer ample opportunity to explore, eat, and engage with other relaxing communities. Grand Beach is just a couple miles north and is another center of charm for Lake Michigan real estate.
