Indiana Dunes Top Local Tourism Draw

(Michigan City, IN) - The Indiana Dunes National Park is the number one draw for tourists in the area.  That’s according to Jack Arnett, executive director of the La Porte County Convention and Visitors Bureau.


Arnett says there’s been an increase of up to 30-percent or more in attendance ever since national park status was granted for that stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline over a year ago.  He says the National Park is far and above the leading tourist attraction right now but  youth sports has also been a major reason for visitors to come here with tournaments locally at least tripling in recent months.
