Small-town living in the shadow of the big city

Cozying up to the Illinois/Indiana border, this southern Chicago suburb is the epitome of easy living. The quintessential Midwestern town, Hammond sits quietly on the shores of vast Lake Michigan. A Hammond vacation rental puts you near all the water sports and outdoor activities you could ever want, while being just a short drive from one the country's biggest cities when you need that urban fix. From museums, to casinos, to sprawling green spaces, there's something for everyone in this peaceful lakefront town (just be sure to bundle up for the winters).

Life in Hammond: Water, water, and more water

For a town in America's heartland, you'll be surprised how many water activities are at your disposal. The shores of Lake Michigan are sprinkled with beaches where locals flock in the summertime for swimming, fishing, and boating. Wolf Lake Memorial Park is Hammond's epicenter of outdoor activities, offering everything from kayaking, windsurfing, and paddleboarding, to boating, fishing, and live music. If all that's not enough, there are also plenty of biking paths and some top-notch golf courses. A Hammond vacation rental is the perfect chance to get that much needed breath of fresh air.

So tell me, are you feeling lucky today?

There's nothing wrong with taking a little gamble once in awhile. Horseshoe Hammond Casino is the place to do just that, and take in some fine shows and a tasty meal while you're at it. For a taste of Hammond's past, there are several historic districts dotted around town, full of stately old buildings. For a taste of more modern architecture, check out the Indiana Welcome Center, a funky, ultra-modern building incorporating elements of barns, lake waves, and sand dunes. The Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana offers simulated space missions and a planetarium. For contemporary art, head to the White Ripple Gallery.

A winter wonderland below the Windy City

You'll experience all four seasons to their fullest at a Hammond vacation rental. Winters are the real deal, as temperatures can dip below the freezing point as early as November and stay that way as late as April (well below from December to February). But don't worry, the blankets of white make the lakeshores even prettier. Spring can be unpredictable as it transitions to the 80- and 90-degree temperatures of June to August. Fall sees beautiful foliage and cooler temps, especially in October when the autumn leaves are at their peak.

Where the lake is great and the nature is even better

Anchored on the southern shore of massive Lake Michigan, suburban Hammond is home to a surprising amount of endangered plants and animals. Wolf Lake features threatened and endangered fish like the lake sturgeon and the banded killifish, while the nearby wetlands are a habitat for multiple species of endangered herons, as well as native and non-native swans that exist among threatened sedges and marsh grasses. Several rare aquatic plants grow in the area. Don't forget to catch the sunrises and sunsets from Lake Michigan's sandy beaches.
