Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is another amazing place that isn’t too far from home. It’s right outside of Gary, Indiana so only about a 3.5 hour trip which isn’t anything compared to the car rides i’ve done. The Dunes has a really nice campground, and it isn’t that far from Lake Michigan. There’s a little camp store and a spot where different food trucks come during the summer. We tried pizza one night where they made it in a wood grill that they had in their truck. It was too good! The beach at the Dunes is a million times nicer that here in Milwaukee, its all sand and big Dunes. The water even seems nicer although it’s the same lake as home. From the beach, on a sunny clear day, you can see the Chicago skyline. Of course at night we have big campfires. The Dunes is a place i would like to start going to every summer, because it’s so fun and close!
