Unless you are going to brave the crowds at the Chicago Air & Water Show, the place to be this weekend is in Michigan City, Indiana. Two laid-back cultural events will be taking place in Michigan City’s Washington Park that you be well rewarded to attend.

Saturday evening kicks off “Smooth Jazz At South Shore” with 3 noted jazz ensembles:

Chill out under the stars with the beach and harbor behind you. If you have not been to Ravinia lately, here is your home-grown Hoosier equivalent. Portions of the proceeds go toward charitable organizations, so buy your tickets at the door or at the retail establishments noted on their site.


Paddle Trail Creek

Sunday, September 11th the Northwest Indiana Paddlers Association, the local canoe and kayak club will sponsor the 4th annual “Trail Creek Fun Float”, which also happens in Washington Park. Consult the NWIPA web site and calendar page for more information, and what you will need to bring if you are new to the sport.

Boaters have found the scenic lighthouse and harbor of Michigan City to be one of the best around. And Michigan City is revitalizing it’s downtown historic district with a new arts district, and other improvements. Nearby Sheridan Beach, Long Beach, Beverly Shores, and the other Duneland communities have always been a favorite of Chicagoans. See me if you wish to explore the real estate in Michigan City Indiana area,  for your weekend retreat, investment, or year-round home.

  1. For those who live in the Duneland area, we often forget about the quality events that are hosted in Michigan City Indiana. Art and music for the weekend sounds more enticing than fighting weekend tourists on the road and for parking spots in the big city.
