Group Tour

The South Shore has everything you are looking for and more!

Located only 25 miles southeast of downtown Chicago, you can stay in Indiana's South Shore for nearly half the price and still enjoy the glamour and convenience of the big city!

We offer an array of places to stay and things to do. From the beach, to shopping, to lakefront casinos, we have something to offer everyone.

There is no place in the Midwest that rivals the South Shore for providing Las Vegas style adventure, entertainment, and action. Try your luck at one of the five lakefront casinos on Lake Michigan.  Ameristar, Horseshoe, Majestic Star I and II and Blue Chip each has a flair of its own, and regardless of which one you visit, you will be in for a great time of testing our luck at nearly 6,500 slot machines and 250 table games.

The South Shore is also home to the intimate 3,400-seat Star Plaza Theatre. Jerry Seinfeld, Patty LaBelle, Tim McGraw and B.B. King are just a few of the stars who have performed at the theatre. If you are looking for Broadway-style shows, then head over to the Theatre at the Center.  There is always a great line-up of popular and original shows performed by a talented cast. For non-stop comedy and dangerous fun, visit Tommy Gun’s Garage in downtown Chicago. You’ll be transported back to the Roaring Twenties at this audience-interactive “speakeasy,” where you can enjoy a delicious dinner, drinks and a hilarious musical comedy review. 

While here, make sure you tour some of the South Shore's hidden treasures. Taste-test the world's best gummies at Albanese Candy Factory, see a calf being born at Fair Oaks Farms, take a journey through the Stations of the Cross at the Shrine of Christ's Passion, watch a bat being made from start to finish at Hoosier Bat, or visit the only war memorial that commemorates every U.S. conflict of the 20th century, Community Veterans Memorial.

Whatever your choice--elegant dining to traditional meals, Italian to Asian--your taste buds will love their stay here. These represent only a couple of the experiences your senses will devour when dining here.

While staying in the South Shore, you can also experience what Chicago has to offer, including must-see attractions such as the Willis Tower sky deck, Chicago River Architecture Cruise, Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium and more. We are also located only a short drive from popular Northern Indiana attractions including Notre Dame and Amish Country.
