Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.

What's the best place to stay along Lake Michigan in Indiana?
Washington Park Beach is one of the best places to stay along Lake Michigan.
Call us biased, but, as you could see by its feature place in the above Lake Michigan Road Trip, we're partial to Michigan City. Otherwise known as Washington Park Beach, this place features more than two miles of totally pristine beach not at all unlike those of the seas. There are so many things to do on the shores of Lake Michigan in this Indiana town; in addition to the beautiful beaches, it's also home to a publicly-operating lighthouse, the only working one in the state! Other nearby attractions include the Washington Park Zoo, a splash park, and, of course, maritime activities like fishing and boating. And if you're looking for a suggestion on where to stay when in Michigan City, we found this cozy beach cottage rental on VRBO that's simply adorable and perfect for a beach getaway in Indiana!
