Visitors Guide

I am very excited to share with you the efforts we have put into our 2015 Official Visitors Guide for La Porte County.

The newly designed guides have arrived at the warehouse, and the first stages of distribution have begun to our partners.

The Visitors Guide features pictures of some of our events and destinations on the cover. It has a magazine-style look, with vibrant, rich colors, pull out maps, and all the information you need to know about what is in La Porte County and how you can create an itinerary to discover your desired destination.

Also, you will find interesting and compelling stories about staying and dining on the water, the heritage of Wanatah and  Westville, Spire Farm to Fork, La Porte County history, recreation activities, First Friday and Second Saturday and pet care.

Plus, you will find a comprehensive county map with the Yellowstone Trail and the Lincoln Highway highlighted and suggestions about the 25 places you don't want to miss.

Visit at any time during the year and you'll find many people moving in and out of places like Lighthouse Place Outlet Mall, Blue Chip Casino Hotel & Spa, Washington Park, Hesston Steam Museum, National Lakeshore Park and the historic downtowns of Michigan City and La Porte, as they visit the great attractions we offer here.

But the bureau is about more than high-profile events and attractions for visitors to the area. La Porte County Convention & Visitors Bureau also serves local residents looking for a prime spot to host everything from trade shows to annual conferences.

There are many options for your meeting or convention. Why not choose a destination that will increase attendance, inspire your participants, and make your work easier? La Porte County CVB offers meeting planners to help you plan your event.

You don't have to travel hours away to experience a good time this winter and early spring. The La Porte County Convention & Visitors Bureau invites you to experience events and festivals right in your own backyard.

Festivals such as the Winterfest, Maple Sugar Festival, First Friday Art Walk, Shelf Ice Brewfest, Bride Blu, Uptown Fashion Affair and a plethora of fun public events in and around the county are offered.

The 2015 1st Trimester Calendar of Events for January through April is now available for free.

The brightly colored Calendar of Events brochure offers dates, times, places, websites and phone numbers of many events and festivals occurring in La Porte County. Make sure you get your calendar and enjoy some awesome fun.
