Things to do

Family attractions near Miller Beach

With Chicago within easy reach of Miller Beach rentals, finding attractions for the whole family to enjoy shouldn't prove too much of a hassle, although closer to home, music fans can tick a trip to the Birthplace of Michael Jackson off their bucket list. If you're traveling with kids, a visit to the Deep River Waterpark in Crown Point is a sure-fire way to put a smile on their faces. The park opens seasonally from just before Memorial Day weekend all the way through to Labor Day, although ice skating is on the menu from Thanksgiving through to the end of February.


Choose your adventure in Miller Beach

Fun on the lake is likely to be a big feature of any summer vacation and Lake St. Beach is the perfect place to start. Along with a wide stretch of golden sand backed by plenty of dunes to explore, this family-friendly spot has launch facilities for jet skis and sailboats. In cooler weather, the focus turns inland to the array of shopping and dining served up at the 2-story Westfield Mall in nearby Merrillville, while those who want to squeeze in a little golf will find the popular Brassie and Turkey Creek courses within a quick jaunt of Miller Beach vacation rentals.


Summer fun in Miller Beach

Travelers heading into town in the summer months of July and August can reasonably expect the best of the weather here, with temperatures averaging around 85 degrees. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the great weather can attract a large crowd and rates for Miller Beach vacation rentals can rise accordingly. Travelers keen to escape the biggest crowds and perhaps get a better deal on their rental will find the late spring months of April and May and September and October in early fall are good options. With freezing temperatures and an inordinate amount of snow, winter breaks are not for the faint-hearted.

Natural features

Shoreline splendor in Miller Beach

While the star of the show at Miller Beach may well be Lake Michigan, the shoreline boasts a fair number of natural highlights of its own, not least the westernmost stretch of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, a spot that includes Miller Woods and the popular West Beach. At Marquette Park, a national landmark, nature lovers will find that the more than 200 acres of space features sand dunes, lagoons, walking and hiking trails and white-sand beachfront, not to mention an indigenous oak savanna and, given the right conditions, memorable views of the Chicago skyline.
