Miller-Beach , or Miller, is a neighborhood of Gary, Indiana, located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Miller also encompasses part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The town is known for its beaches and trendy neighborhoods. The town of Miller began in the early 1800s as a stagecoach stop when an inn and tavern were erected near what is now the intersection of Lake Street and Miller Avenue. With the coming of the railroads, the place was first called Millers Junction and then Miller Station. The settlement that rapidly grew up surrounding the train station eventually became known as Miller. The historic Old Miller Train Station was relocated just a few yards from its original location and is now the main dining room for Miller Pizza Station, a popular railroad themed Italian restaurant. Miller Beach is surrounded on all sides by the Indiana Dunes National Park. The town appears remote, but it's actually only a half-hour from downtown Chicago. The beaches, wind-swept dunes and natural beauty and wildlife makes property in Miller Beach exceedingly valuable. Thousands of visitors flock to Miller each year to enjoy hiking the dune trails, birdwatching, water sports and fishing. Miller Beach is also famous for glider flights across the dunes. Beach front properties in Miller are also available for rent during the summer, many of which provide breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan. During the winter months, activity in Miller slows considerably, however the dunes and trails provide for great hiking, sledding, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.
