6 Travel Apps to Make Your Serenity Stay Extra Special

It’s no secret that the world we live in has become a digital-focused one. We depend on our devices for news, updates, and guidance. At Serenity, we’re proud to offer our guests a place for guests to relax and unplug, but we know that mobile apps can be a helpful resource on your trip, whether you plan to spend time in our haven of relaxation or decide to explore the area. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of apps that can make your stay at Serenity even more relaxing.

1. Uber

Did you know Uber is available in LaPorte and Michigan City? Uber can take our guests to many places in the the surrounding area — all at a relatively low cost! If you’re traveling from Chicago, you can use Uber to travel to and from our closest train station on the South Shore Line, Carroll Ave. Station, with ease. Feel free to leave your car at home!

2. Lake Life 

New to Northwest Indiana, Lake Life is an app that provides users with a list of restaurants, shops, coffee shops, and more, for each of the many popular areas along the coast of Lake Michigan. If your mobile device is an Apple product, click here to learn more about Lake Life. If your device is an Android product, click here.

3. Yelp 

If you’re having a hard time deciding what’s for dinner, Yelp is a great resource that allows you to filter types of cuisine, city, price point, etc. Whether you’re planning to go out or stay in your cabin for a candlelit dinner arranged by Serenity Springs and an area restaurant, Yelp can help you find the perfect restaurant.

4. The Weather Channel  

Planning for rain, snow, or any inclement weather is tough, especially when the forecast changes quickly. Try the Weather Channel apps to get updates on weather conditions — some of the features they offer include interactive radar, rain alerts, and storm tracking.  And even if unexpected weather causes you to have a change of plans, we have plenty of movies you can borrow!

5. Waze 

This navigation tool gives you the fastest route to your destination, allowing you to spend less time driving and more time hiking, fishing, or watching movies. Waze helps drivers let each other know about traffic issues, driving conditions, and more. You can use Waze to help get you to and from Serenity, plus help you navigate to the many nearby attractions along Lake Michigan.

6. iExit 

iExit allows its users to find pitstops along their journeys. This is perfect for Serenity guests who have to travel a few hours to us and back to their homes.

This is just a short list of the apps that can help enhance your stay at Serenity — no doubt there are many more! We hope that these help you unwind, have fun, and make your stay incredible. And don’t forget, if you have any questions or need any recommendations, our staff is always ready to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible! To book your stay, call us at 219-861-0000.
