Things to do in Michigan City

Things to do in Michigan CityWith a lot of options to choose from while you are visiting the area, here are my three favorite things to do in Michigan.

  1. Visit the Lake Michigan Beach

Known for its singing sands, dare to walk barefoot and listen to how it got its name. You can also enjoy the serene waters from a boat, but if you don’t have any, there are boats for rent available.

  1. Go fishing

While riding the rented boat, you can opt to go fishing in the waters of Lake Michigan. But before anything else, make sure to secure a fishing permit and know when, where, and what to fish for. Set up your baits to hook some salmon and trout.

  1. Eat good food with the locals

When it comes to new places, finding good food is easy when you know where the locals eat! Ask around— they’re the locals; they can recommend you to the best restaurants there are.

Tick off your ‘things to do in Michigan City’ list in one go by dropping by at Fiddlehead Restaurant. Located near the Lake Michigan, enjoy the view as you are served food of the highest and freshest quality.
