This ride starts in Portage Indiana at the intersection of Indiana HWY 249 and US Highway 12. Take Highway 12 west until you reach Michigan City.
A winding two lane highway through the Indiana dunes National Lakeshore. Fall foliage is gorgeous, although anytime of year it is a beautiful ride.
This highway is flat, with quite a few sweeping turns. It is blacktop, and very well maintained, with very few (if any) potholes.
This highway is adjacent to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore so there is camping, public beaches on Lake Michigan, and picnic areas. There are also historic homes to view not far from the highway in Beverly Shores on the lakefront. There are fuel stops and a restaurant or two. There is also Michigan Citys light house at Franklin Park, a zoo and a pier. For your shopping needs there is the Lighthouse Mall which is a name brand outlet mall in Michigan City.
