This is the Best Lake Town in Indiana

As you know, we have a lot of lakes in Indiana. These lakes scattered all throughout the state provide guests with great opportunities for boating, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and some breathtaking views. Spending a day (or even a weekend) on a lake in Indiana is something that Hoosiers like me long for in those cold, winter months. Something about being on a boat and casting a line out in the water sounds like my kind of fun. According to Far & Wide, Michigan City is the best lake town in Indiana. Here's what they had to say about it:

Though located in Indiana, Michigan City is named after the Great Lake it borders. The town's main summer attraction are the long stretches of beach at Indiana Dunes National Park. 

Stroll around the picturesque old town and shop at its small boutique shops, or get a photo of the pretty red-and-white lighthouse. 

It's fitting that Michigan City was named the best lake town in Indiana because Indiana Dunes was recently named the most underrated tourist attraction in the state. You can read more about that by clicking here.
