You could believe you're in the middle of space, but in reality, you're still in central Idaho. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is home to deep fissures, craters, and lava fields due to eight major volcanic eruption events that took place between 2,000 and 15,000 years ago. Subsurface volcanic and tectonic activity is still rather significant, therefore the topography is constantly shifting. Get your bearings in the visitor center, where local geologists and lithologists are on hand to answer any questions. You may then go hiking on the Broken Top Loop trek or discover Indian Tunnel.Northern Indiana's 15 miles of Lake Michigan beachfront are protected in this national park. Visitors may enjoy ideal kite-flying real estate, animals, marshes, and dunes throughout more than 50 miles of hiking paths on 15,000 acres of federally supported property. Around the lake, tourists will find charming villages with exciting nightlife. Visit Portage, a city on the lake, or Chesterton, a city known for its artistic culture, after you've had your fill of the waterfront.
