Photograph the Chicago Skyline from the Indiana Dunes

Chesterton, Indiana


Added by Amelia Walker

Capture Chicago's famous skyline from Indiana's sandy coastline.

Indiana Dunes State Park and Beach is a family friendly beach perfect for a day out in the sun. However, it has something to offer most beaches don't - a view of Chicago over the water!  It's a great shot to try to capture on your camera, especially at sunset when colorful clouds fill the sky over the water.  It's $7 for in state vehicles and $12 for out of state vehicles to come into the park for the day, and it's well worth the price!
