These Are The Most Instagrammable Locations In Michigan and Indiana

Every summer has a story, and thanks to social media your adventure is completely shareable. Whether you’re just looking for something beyond the ordinary to do or looking to never forget your stunning surroundings, these postcard-worthy hot spots around Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan are sure to pack a punch on your Instagram feed.

Warren Dunes State Park

We love a good beach shot and the Warren Dunes State Park is just that. Ranked #1 beach in the State of Michigan, visitors can find jaw-dropping views atop a dune formation that sits 260 feet over the lake and spans three miles of sandy beaches. The shoreline is pet-friendly so bring Fido along for the perfect pic (we all know everyone loves a dog on Insta!).

Beachside Scoops

What’s better to show off than a delectable sweet treat? Beachside Scoops offers ice cream, fro-yo, sorbet, iced coffee and fruit smoothies for guests alongside New Buffalo Beach. For an added bonus, the trademark lighthouse creates the perfect backdrop to your summer!

Acorn Theater

Let everyone know you’re about to see a great show at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks by snapping a picture of its vibrant marquee sign. The theater touts itself as a funky-industrial-chic venue for high-quality entertainment and is a one-stop-shop close to nearby restaurants, including Journeyman Distillery and Featherbone Restaurant & Lounge.

Beer Church

Looking for a summer experience like no other? Look no further than Beer Church Brewing. This iconic Civil War-era church was saved from being knocked down and transformed into a craft brewery and pizzeria. An aesthetically pleasing Andy Warhol-esque logo provides the perfect backdrop for a photo of your pint, don’t forget to tag #BeerChurch for your chance to win “beer things!”

Friendship Botanic Gardens

For the adventurer, the Friendship Botanic Gardens offer visitors an up-close look at nature, from birdwatching to trail creek fishing. With an abundance of flowers and foliage, it’s no surprise this natural beauty is a popular spot for local weddings. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, don’t miss Butterfly Bonanza on July 29th and see the Monarch butterflies’ release against the backdrop of the brightly hued garden.
