    Cons: No rentals of beach equipment and no beer or wine allowed

    Summary: Miles of sandy beaches between a steel mill and a nuclear power plant? Yes! This stretch of the Indiana lakefront is much like Gary and Michigan city looked 150 years ago. Too bad huh? The beach is great, and the main beach right down HWY 49 off of ... read more
