Indiana Dunes Lakeshore

The Indiana Dunes National Lake Shore offers miles of sandy beaches. Where in the world can you find a beach as lovely as this one on a hot summer day with not a person in sight?

The water is cold, clean, and clear for wading or a quick swim. The sky is blue and on clear days you can see the Chicago skyline in the distance; a busy work-a-day world across an expanse of crystal blue water.

If you come for a visit, this is a "leave no trace" area. Carry your garbage out and keep the park clean to protect the wildlife and delicate ecosystems, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.

During a recent visit beachcombing yielded some brightly colored pebbles sifted from the sky blue waters and the whispering water soothed my soul.
