Travel Tips for Chesterton

South Shore & Chicago Interurban Cars

by Toughluck

If you're interested in railroading and/or the old Interurban railroads, there are some old 1920 South Shore cars in Chesterton. They are just north of the tracks and Thomas Park (downtown Chesterton). They have been incorporated into a building along the active CN (Canadian National) tracks. Today, they are not in use, but they have been a graphic shop, printing store, restaurant, account's office, etc. While you can't get inside, you're free to look around the outside.

Heron Rookery

by Toughluck

For directions on getting to the Rookery, see my tip at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Off the Beaten Path.

"Little Calumet River"

The Little Calumet was 'ditched', dug out and straightened to drain the surround land for farms during the end of the 19th Century. Today, this section is return slowly to a more natural shape. Eddies are forming, where trout and salmon like to hide. The current is undercutting parts of the bank and in other places creating a shoreline that includes benches and 'beaches'.

Walking through the forest we'll come across areas carpeted with flowers. Other areas are dank with moisture. In spring, there may be standing water in many parts of the rookery.

Trillium is one of the first flowers that appears in the spring. It is recognizable early because of the three leaves. The rookery includes this spotted leaf variety as well as a solid green variety. The flowers are white on the solid green variety.

The high moisture in the low lying areas supports a variety of fungi (mushrooms or more properly toadstools). Don't pick and eat any of these, unless you know what's what. Most of these varieties are poisonous to humans.
