Valparaiso has small-town charm in a growing city of over 31,000 people. In the heart of the “Crossroads of America,” it’s close to highways that can take you almost anywhere in the United States such as Interstate-65, Interstate-80, Interstate-90, and Interstate-94. There’s also plenty of attractions here, such as a vibrant theater culture, lush parks, a drive-in movie theater, “you-pick” farms, championship golf courses, museums, skiing, and Division I college sports. The quaint downtown is great for a casual weekend stroll, or head 12 miles to the north and spend the day at the beach. Whatever you decide to do, Valparaiso has history, nature, shopping, and is lots of fun.
