Nestled into the white-sand shores of Lake Michigan, Michigan City is located in the northernmost part of LaPorte County, Indiana, and is only 50 miles east of Chicago and 5 miles southwest of the Michigan state line. 

Our city’s economy features a sound industrial base accompanied by strong retail, service and tourism sectors. The community is also extremely well-oriented and easily accessible to the greater Chicago area—America’s second largest market. Michigan City downtown is undergoing a renaissance with a 44 unit $13 million artist loft and 18 new diverse restaurants and micro-breweries in the past 3 years.

Our central location between Chicago and other leading Midwestern industrial and consumer markets makes Michigan City a natural location for production and distribution facilities. Located within one-day’s drive to half of the population of the United States, markets within 200 miles of Michigan City include Detroit, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Toledo. 

The City of Michigan looks forward to your visit. Here are a few links to explore to plan your visit.

" I have been to a number of events but this was the best run event that I have been to.  I learned a lot about the process with attraction projects, and what site consultants are looking for from the county and their website.  The way the event was set up I had the plenty of time to actually have a meaningful talk with each and everyone of the site consultants there.  I can only hope that you will be doing more of these events which I will be very interested in attending.."
