Long-Beach is located in LaPorte County, Indiana in the northwest portion of the state along the southeast shore of Lake Michigan. It's included in the Michigan City-LaPorte metropolitan area. As of the 2000 census, the population of LaPorte was 1,559 residents. Long Beach was established in the 1920s, predominately as a summer get-away, mostly for people from nearby Chicago. Today, it still retains the original character and has a variety of home architectures. Long Beach is a mostly residential community with various tree covered dunes, and a shoreline of approximately 3 miles. It's near the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Park. The park contains 15 miles of beaches, as well as sand dunes bogs, marshes, swaps, fens prairies, rivers, forests and oak savannas. The park is also known for its singing sands, a phenomenon where sands produce a sound described as roaring, booming, squeaking, or the Song of Dune." More than 350 species of birds have been observed in the park. It has one of the most diverse plant communities of any unit in the U.S. National Park System with 1418 vascular plant species including 90 threatened or endangered ones. With its' close proximity to the lakeshore, Long Beach provides ample opportunities for swimming, fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.

Long Beach 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.
