Welcome to Long Beach

Set along the shores of Lake Michigan in a unique setting, Long Beach boasts its small town charm and access to the lake. Long Beach was originally established in the 1920's when it was predominately a summer getaway. With close proximity to Chicago, Michigan's Harbor Country and all that Indiana has to offer, Long Beach is a great community to raise a family, enjoy the seasons or just visit. Welcome.
