La PORTE COUNTY — The Northern Indiana Tourism Development Commission (NITDC) kicked off their sixth year of attracting visitors to Northern Indian with the 2015 Art and Earth Trail Guide. This trail, through seven northern Indiana counties, features more than 150 artists, artisans, crafters, agriculture producers, unique accommodations and specialty restaurants. Visitors to the trail will experience firsthand the talent and cultural diversity found in Northern Indiana. The seven loops of the trail sweep from Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes to areas known for sparkling inland lakes, past the Golden Dome of Notre Dame and onto roads where horse-drawn Amish buggies seem to outnumber cars.
The trails are Indiana Dunes, Michigan City La Porte, Notre Dame, Time to Unwind, Lakes, Heritage and Shipshewana.
