Beverly-Shores Shores is a small town located in Porter County in the northwest corner of Indiana, just 36 miles east of Chicago. As of the 2000 census, the population was 708. With its' location on the southern tip of Lake Michigan, it's an easy drive to downtown Chicago or South Bend, Indiana. The town is served by the South Shore Line commuter railroad. Beverly Shores began as a planned resort community. In the mid-1960s, a movement to include the town in the proposed Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore began. When Congress authorized the National Lakeshore in 1966, two-thirds of the towns acreage became part of the park. In 1971, another effort was started to include the remainder of the Town in the Lakeshore. In 1980, after nine years of Congressional consideration, a parcel of land bordering the Town to the south became part of the National Lakeshore, but the center of the community, the Island, and land bordering U.S. 12, were excluded. The uncertainty of inclusion or exclusion of the Island affected building in Beverly Shores during the 1970s, and early 1980s. It is, nonetheless, a lovely little town with a mix of architectural styles from historic to newly-constructed, modern homes. Beverly Shores is nestled in the wooded sand dunes surrounded by the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Parkland, and it has easy access to the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan.

Beverly Shores Weather & Climate

Northwest Indiana has a four-season climate typical of most of the Midwest, with a few exceptions due to its proximity to Lake Michigan. Cold air passing over the warmer lake water induces precipitation in the lee of Lake Michigan in autumn and winter. As a result of this phenomena, heavy winter precipitation, especially snowfall, can amount to as much as 76 inches, compared to 14 inches in the south. Lake-related snowfall and cloudiness can extend to central Indiana in winter, driven by strong northwesterly winds. In the spring, daily maximum temperatures decrease northward in northern Indiana because of the cooling effect of the Lake. Average daily minimum temperatures in autumn are higher in northwestern Indiana near the warmer lake surface than farther south.
