getting there

Venue Location

The Friendship Botanic Gardens

 2055 US-12, Michigan City, IN 46360

We recommend flying into either Midway International Airport (MDW) or O'Hare International Airport (ORD), both of which are located in Chicago. 

Distance from Midway to our venue

1 hour, 10 minutes | 63 miles | 101 km

Distance from O'Hare to our venue

1 hour, 20 minutes | 84 miles | 135 km

getting around

Both O'Hare and Midway Airports have rental car services if you should wish to rent a car to get around. We do not recommend our international travelers book a rental car, see why here.

We recommend downloading either the Uber or Lyft apps if you'd like to rideshare and be able to schedule from your phone.

where to stay

We have a group booking rate at The Blue Chip Casino, which is located just a few minutes from the venue. Click here (include link) if you'd like to get the special rate while there are still rooms available.

If you're traveling with a larger group, for a longer duration, or want to have a luxurious getaway for the weekend, we recommend renting a home through Beachwalk Vacation Rentals.

If you're looking for a more quaint and cozy stay, we recommend booking with either 4411 Inn & Suites or The Bridge Inn.

If none of these options sound perfect for you, please feel free to find something that better fits your budget, spatial requirements, or vibes.
