The Miller Beach area is a quaint part of Northwest Indiana that offers an abundance of wildlife-watching opportunities. Because of its tourism draws, the town also features a walkable downtown area that caters to neighboring residents and visitors.
During the summer months, the Miller Beach Farmers Market provides fresh food to shoppers, while several cafés and small restaurants offer a variety of foods for differing tastes.
Those looking for a gift or souvenir may check out small independent stores like Indie Indie Bang Bang, 625 South Lake Street, an eclectic lifestyle boutique that showcases gourmet gifts, fashion accessories and artwork. The Lake Street Gallery, 613 South Lake Street, is another option for visitors searching for fine crafts such as artisan jewelry, pottery and reproductions of vintage South Shore posters. The newly opened Vibrations Health, Wellness and Juice Bar, 615 Lake Street, offers health products including all-natural body soaps, organic teas, and local honey.
