What Bert Has To Say About Michigan City-La Porte Metro Area

It’s kind of hard to call any place in Indiana a “beach town,” but Michigan City probably comes the closest to earning this designation. Located right on Lake Michigan and almost adjacent to the Indiana Dunes National Seashore, the area picks up its share of tourist activity from Chicago and all over the Midwest in the late spring, summer and fall. Otherwise, both Michigan City and LaPorte have a strong industrial heritage, with an important but somewhat declining old-economy manufacturing base.
