Do the Indiana Dunes from the air
To enhance your Indiana Dunes Trip, enjoy a relaxing one-hour flight over the dunes and the rest of Indiana Dunes Country. Begin your journey at Porter County Regional Airport, where Eagle Aircraft offers one-hour flights. The cost is only $189 for three people ($239 with dinner; $325 with dinner and a hotel stay – rates subject to change).
Then, once you’ve flown above it all, drive to downtown Valparaiso’s Central Park and get your photo taken at with the statue of popcorn king and native son Orville Redenbacher. While downtown, you’ll find unique shops and a wide variety of dining options, including farm-to-fork cuisine, ethnic restaurants, steak and seafood, casual fare and more.
Then head up to the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center and let us direct you to the nearby Indiana Dunes sites where you can enjoy a relaxing stroll on the beach, a vigorous hike or just a drive along the Lake Michigan lakeshore.
Extend your stay with a comfortable night at one of Indiana Dunes Country’s great lodging choices, whether you’re looking for charming bed and breakfast establishments or great hotels.
