As the Mayor of Michigan City, on behalf of its citizens, businesses and organizations, I am excited to welcome you.

In addition to our beautiful beach, great fishing, boating, swimming and hiking, we offer just what you want in recreation, golfing, leisure, dining, entertainment and shopping. Blue Chip Casino and Convention Center, Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets Mall, International Friendship Botanical Gardens, our many local bars and restaurants, and 35 city parks await your enjoyment.
The fun in Michigan City never ends with year-round events and activities for people of every age. Come and enjoy the Barker Mansion, the Farmer’s Market, the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, Washington Park and Zoo, our annual summer parade, July 4th Fireworks, Snowflake Parade, and Winter Festival of Lights.
We are a community rich in people of many nationalities, races, origins, cultures and religions. Michigan City maintains and supports a diverse range of manufacturing, service and retail businesses, and welcomes entrepreneurs and new businesses.
I am proud to serve my hometown as its Mayor. Please come and enjoy yourself in the place we call home - MICHIGAN CITY!
