Welcome

Welcome to the
Neighborhood

Lake County is located in the state of Indiana and is the states second-most populous
county. The county seat is city of Crown Point. It was named for its location on Lake
Michigan and was officially established in February, 1837. The county is part of North-
west Indiana and the Chicago Metropolitan Areas, and contains a mix of urban, suburban
and rural areas. It is the home to a portion of the Indiana Dunes and to Marktown,
Clayton Mark's planned worker community in East Chicago.

There is plenty to see and do here in the Lake County and South Shore Area. Find some
family fun activities, outdoor adventure or do some relaxing with friends. Come explore
the outdoors and spend the day on the beach, do some hiking or biking, go fishing,
boating, golfing or attend an outdoor event. Come grab a bite to eat or do some shopping,
enjoy a live theatre show or explore the historical landmarks around the area. No matter
what kind of adventure you’re looking for, you’re sure to find something here in the
beautiful Lake County Area.

Health

Excellent health care…
Close to home.

Having good health overall is a major key to a long and healthy life. Finding ways to take care of
your health can aid in recovery and help you feel better daily. Get routine check-ups and visit your
doctor when you're not feeling well. Sometimes, it is hard to tell whether not feeling well is due to
a side-effect of medicine, a symptom of a health disorder or any other different health problem.
Talk to your doctor or other health care specialist for any other questions or information.
