Michigan City, Ind., was an unexpected delight. It had been quite awhile since Aaron and I had been there, and we’d never been there with a toddler. There were so many things to do within walking distance of the marina that we never even made it to town.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll let these speak for themselves. For reference, though, we stayed at the Michigan City Port Authority marina and spent the entire day at Washington Park and Beach. This amazing space included the Washington Park Zoo, a charming little spot with a walk-through aviary, petting barn, 70-foot tower, zebras, monkeys and more, and the Oasis Splash Park, where Claire could have spent the entire afternoon running through the misters and watching the giant bucket fill up and dump.
Also, I’ll be creating another section of the blog that details things to do and places to explore in each port we visit, so stay tuned!
We could have easily spent another day here – a true gem just a stone’s throw away (and a reasonable sail) from Chicago.
