If you only have 1-2 hours:
- Stroll the sandy shoreline to enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Michigan and the national lakeshore.
- Learn about the ever changing dunes and the plants that call them home by hiking the West Beach Dune Succession Trail and boardwalk.
- Relax at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Visitor Center and enjoy our park videos, "Child of the Northwest Wind" and "The Indiana Dunes: Our Natural Wonder" for a virtual tour of park. Each video is 12 minutes in length. Then, help the kids explore the center's activity room to learn even more about this special place.
- Travel along Lakefront Drive in the town of Beverly Shores to view Lake Michigan and the five historic Century of Progress Homes from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair.
