What’s it like to live in Michigan City?

Michigan City is one of Indiana’s few true beach towns with a vibrant downtown full of restaurants, shops, and attractions that are walking distance from beautiful Lake Michigan.

We also have a versatile mix of museums, galleries, parks, and our very own zoo. If you live in Michigan City you can be a tourist in your own small town.
