Grand-Beach is a village of less than 150 residents located in Harbor County in the southwest portion of the state, near Lake Michigan. Harbor County includes the towns of Michiana, New Buffalo, Three Oaks, Union Pier, Lakeside, Harbert and Grand Beach. The little town of Grand Beach began as a shooting preserve in the early 1900s and was later promoted as a resort community, which it remains today. The area is filled with upscale homes that surround a private country club, and the village of Grand Beach is also home to the Grand Beach Nature Preserve. Harbor County is anchored by two public beaches; New Buffalo at the southern end and the Warren Dunes State Park on the northern end. Many local township beaches can be found in between. Three golf courses are also located in the area and hiking trails and camping can be found in Warren Woods State Preserve and Warren Dunes State Park. The latter is also considered to have the areas' best sand dunes and is home to "Tower Hill." Other area attractions include swimming, boating and fishing, wind surfing, biking, antique shopping and dining in quaint small towns.

Grand 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.
