Things to do around Merrillville
Located 50 minutes from downtown Chicago, the Merrillville area offers more than 30 golf courses as well as high-stakes gaming at the Horseshoe Hammond Casino. Other popular area attractions include:

Star Plaza Theatre – Catch a Broadway show, a comedy act or a classic rock legend at this 3,400-seat theatre connected to the Radisson by skywalk. If you’re coming into town for a show, get great seats with our Theatre Package.

Deep River Waterpark – A 10-minute drive takes you to the largest waterpark in the Chicago area. Unlike many parks, Deep River allows you to bring in a cooler with your own snacks and soft drinks, but don’t let that stop you from sampling Deep River’s nachos, pizza and ice cream.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore – Popular for its miles of sandy beaches along Lake Michigan, this national park is just 30 minutes from the Radisson. The 50 miles of trails run over sandy dunes, along scenic rivers, and through forests and wetlands. Birders can watch for great blue herons, American kestrels, sandpipers and woodpeckers.
