National Park
“If you want a great day trip option in the area to spend time outdoors, I recommend this place, as it has beautiful scenery and perfect for picnics. Note: The national lakeshore part of Indiana Dunes is free--the state park portion is not. Also note: it is in Eastern time zone and traffic coming back from here is often slow.”

Park
“Now a full fledged National Park, with hiking options and historical sights. located 25 to 45 minutes drive from Union Pier. What makes the Indiana Dunes unique is that the national park lands are interspersed between sites of industry that still drive the economy of NW Indiana. Two recommended hikes: Cowles Bog and Tolleston Dunes, and the Bailly Homestead is a fun historical site, and great for kids. ”

Park
“This is a quick, 11 mile drive straight up to the north terminus of IN 49. Right at the southern tip of Lake Michigan, this is my favorite place to go for the beach and for the trails! There are miles of wide, sandy beach flanked by beautiful sand dunes, some of which guests are allowed to climb. Turn right at the roundabout to visit the Nature Center. From the Nature Center (indoor restroom) you can access Trails 7, 8, 9, and 10. If you are feeling especially energetic, take the 3 Dune Challenge and scale the three tallest sand dunes in the State Park! Or you can continue on to Trail 9 and 10 trailheads at Wilson Shelter (water fountain in warmer months and portapotty year round). From Trail 9, known as The Ridge, you can look to the north over majestic Lake Michigan, and to the south over the oak savannah. Parking fees: $7 for Indiana residents, $12 for out-of-state residents.”

“Great little hike with a great view of the dunes at the end! The trail itself isn't too crowded or strenuous.”

Wanderweg
“This is an easy 6.2 mile drive straight up IN 49. This is a beautifully laid out preserve with some paved trails and some unpaved trails. Coffee Creek meanders throughout the preserve, and there are benches and decks where you can stop and rest. There is a marked 5K trail, though you can walk a shorter or longer distance. If you’re lucky, you’ll see deer in the woods, and Eastern Bluebirds in the open areas. There is a restroom on site. Free.”
