The South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority (SSCVA) is gearing up to celebrate National Tourism Week which runs May 1, 2016 to May 7, 2016. Each year they have events during that week that are directed toward the improvement of tourism in the Region and the celebration of all things unique along the South Shore.
National Travel and Tourism Week falls on the first week of May (May 1 through May 7 this year), and Northwest Indiana has plenty to celebrate because we have a lot to offer the country that runs right along our beautiful South Shore.
Vacations are always a good idea. But then there’s the travel expenses, booking hotels, getting up and leaving your house at 2am so you don’t miss your flight at 5am, is the destination kid-friendly, and who’s going to watch the dog?
Suffering from cabin fever? In the market for a new car? Looking for that perfect accessory? Interested in the latest concept cars or innovative automotive technologies? Then the 2016 Chicago Auto Show is your destination! The largest auto show in the country will be held at McCormick Place February 13-21. Avoid unpredictable Chicago winter weather and take the South Shore Line.
Were you planning on spending the weekend inside to work on projects, deep clean the house or snuggle under a blanket in front of the TV? Well, it’s time to change your plans! The Super Bowl teams have been selected and for the first time since August, it’s a FOOTBALL-FREE weekend! And to top it off, the weather will be unseasonably warm with temperatures in the 40ºs.
Effective immediately, law enforcement and contractor vehicles are reopening the northbound lanes of I-65 between Lebanon and Lafayette. Walsh Construction Company completed repairs and load tested the Wildcat Creek bridge near Lafayette as Indiana Department of Transportation inspectors observed.
It’s going to be a special day today in Northwest Indiana. The sun will be shining all day (0% chance of rain across the board) and all night, the birds will be chirping, with highs ranging from 85 in Hammond and Highland, 86 in Whiting, all the way down to a cool, calm 82 in Michigan City and La Porte.
Hey Northwest Indiana, we got a sunny day with a high around 80 degrees all over the Region!
As someone who just moved to Northwest Indiana about six months ago, the one thing I have grown to love about the area is that every town seems to have its own unique identity to it. You can drive a mile in one direction and suddenly be transformed to a whole new world.
The South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority celebrated National Travel and Tourism Week on Wednesday at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond. Regional officials and business and community leaders gathered for a luncheon and presentation on the state of national and regional tourism.
