US North East Trip – Indiana Dunes

After Niagara Falls, we headed to Indiana – the home of Indiana Jones!

Actually, we didn’t do much at that trip. We found a Church in a small town – of course Presbyterian Church, and had worship service, then we looked around a few places around the Indianapolis, the capital city and a beach.

But last Sunday, we visited Indiana again for that famous Indiana Dunes!

Indiana Dunes is right north of Chesterton, IN and its lake shore is 25 miles long. It is of course a state park. If you are resident of Indiana State, you need to pay $5 entrance fee per car while you need to pay $10 if you are out of that state.

Indiana Dunes is at the Lake Michigan which is one of the Great Lakes. Lake Michigan does not in only at Michigan state. Illinois and Chicago have Lake Michigan and Indiana has it, and Wisconsin has it too. The word Michigan derived from native American language which means great water.

It was piping hot last Sunday, but the water was freezing cold. This lake is huge and huge. Unless you taste the water, you cannot tell if it is sea or not. It has waves, seagulls and everything.

The sand was so soft and nice. The only beach I’ve been to where the sand was finer and nicer was Grand Beach in Manitoba, Canada.

It takes around two hours from home, so we may visit here often. Indiana Dunes is very nice place to have lots of fun.
