Transportation routes made Indiana a crossroads of different elements central to the Midwest. The Great Lakes give way to vast plains of corn, farmers share freeways with factory workers, and rural countryside verges on large cities. There's much to see and lots to do in the state of Indiana.
One of the must-see places is Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore which runs for nearly 25 miles along southern Lake Michigan, bordered by Michigan City, Indiana on the east, and Gary on the west. Miles of beaches, sand dunes, bog, wetlands, woodland forests, an 1830's French Canadian homestead, and a working 1900 era farm combine to make the national lakeshore a unique setting. Indiana Dunes is ranked 7th among national parks in native plant diversity. Research conducted over the last two decades has revealed 1,418 vascular plant species within park boundaries, of which over 90 are on the state of Indiana's threatened or endangered list.
