Personal post 🙂
My family and I spent a week at the Indiana Dunes last month and had so much fun!
I grew up in North Carolina and spent practically every summer at the ocean as a child, so when we first visited the Dunes last summer I wasn’t sure what to expect. Turns out, it’s very similar to the North Carolina coast: lots of tourists, super hot sand, waves, and friendly people. The biggest differences were that the water isn’t salty, the waves aren’t quite as big (depending on the wind that day), and you are actually allowed to climb on (and “sled” down) the dunes — fun!
So this summer, we were very excited to go back.
This year we also ventured up to Chicago on the South Shore Line, which was really fun, too. My kids *loved* the train ride (and learning how to play rock/paper/scissors):
Excited to do it all again next summer!
