New Home Communities in Gary

Imagine fifteen miles of pristine white sands. Imagine the sound of the surf, the warm summer sun, and the sight of an endless sea of sand dunes behind you.

You're not dreaming you're not on vacation-- you're in Gary. Specifically the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Incredible, right? As you'll soon learn, Gary is not what you'd expect. Think of it as the "Beach Capital of Indiana," or as it is more commonly described, "Southeastern Chicago." Gary is an excellent choice for those who want to live in a more affordable, less congested version of Chicagoland.

Created in 1906 by US Steel, Gary was a one-industry town, and it looks like it. However, like its northern neighbor Detroit, it's coming back, powered by the natural advantages of existing infrastructure, as well as-- of course-- proximity to the lake and to Chicago. Locals love to go to the "beach" in the summer. It's also a great place to bring the family dog for a long walk. Sometimes in the winter, the lake will freeze, leaving a pristine all-natural ice skating rink behind. Bring your skates!

Sightseeing downtown is another favorite pastime of many Gary residents. There are many beautiful historic buildings, waiting to be discovered by your eyes or camera. In fact, many photographers are drawn to the area because it is so striking. The downtown area is stamped with the indelible mark of the 1920s, when development was in full swing. Thanks to this period of growth in the early twentieth century, it has a few Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, some neoclassical structures like Union Station, and an antique church in the form of the City United Methodist Church. Some buildings downtown have been abandoned for the past decade as Gary residents moved away from the city and into the suburbs. This gives them a mysterious, but extremely photogenic air.

In contrast, Miller Beach by the lake bustles with people and activity. This is where Gary is growing. Many of today's best builders and developers constructed summer homes and year-round homes that take advantage of the area's pretty sights. Lake Street is full of restaurants and shops for you to explore. Even if you don't live in Miller Beach, the area is certainly worth a day, or even a full weekend, of exploration.


At New Home Source, we know that making a move is a big decision. But this is a town unlike any other. You can be a part of the city's coming renaissance in one of our brand-new, beautiful homes or condos in Gary.
