Michigan City offerings include arts, summer theatre, Indiana’s only working lighthouse and a museum in the former lighthouse keeper’s house where you can climb to the top for a far-reaching view. Further inland, the historic community of LaPorte shows off its past in the holiday home tour and at a train museum where you can ride the rails. Along the way, you’ll meet miniature horses; discover fine dining, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and a classic Italian restaurant that will deliver your dinner to the beach. Over 150 studios, galleries, markets, specialty shops and lodgings are participating. Learn more at the Art & Earth Trail website.
