The official 2016 Indiana Dunes Country Activities Guide, which is a comprehensive guide to Porter County’s attractions, restaurants, hotels and more, is now available.

The free guide, produced by Indiana Dunes Tourism, the official tourism bureau of Porter County, is being distributed to potential visitors in an effort to get them to visit and spend their dollars in the local communities. Local residents are also welcome to pick up a copy at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center, located at 1215 N. State Road 49 in Porter.

Indiana Dunes Tourism Executive Director Lorelei Weimer said the Activities Guide contains a lot of ideas for fun of which even longtime residents might not be aware.

New in this year’s guide are suggestions of unique places to take “selfies” throughout the area, a guide to top pizza parlors and purveyors of sweets, and a page devoted to local craft brewpubs and wineries. There’s also a historical page with information about how to enjoy Indiana’s bicentennial and the National Park Service and Indiana park centennials.

The guide also features listings for Indiana Dunes beaches and hiking trails, museums, and places for family fun like the 49er Drive-In Theatre, Broken Wagon Bison Farm and Taltree Arboretum Railway Garden. It has even got sections devoted to summer farmer’s markets, fall drives and winter recreation.

The guide’s restaurant listings feature new places that people might not know have opened.

This year’s guide has articles about The 3 Dune Challenge at Indiana Dunes State Park and how to enjoy Indiana Dunes Country if you take the train from Chicago, and it has recommendations from local residents. There is also a two-page spread of day trips that people can take from Porter County, including going to Chicago, Amish Acres, Notre Dame, the Barn Quilt Trail and more.

While the 76-page guide is a useful resource to local residents, it is designed to encourage potential visitors to choose Porter County as a destination and then extend their stays by letting them know all there is to do in our communities.

Weimer encourages people to call the Visitor Center at 219-926-2255 if they have any questions or if they would like to request a guide. People can also visit to view or download the guide electronically. Degrees awarded, while the genders are about even in graduate programs in law and business administration
