Merrillville

A town south of Gary, Merrillville doesn’t have much going on outside of retail and restaurants. If you find yourself passing through, I can mention two places to stop into.

 

Albanese Candy Factory

The Albanese Candy Factory and Outlet Store, located on US 30, has a wide variety of candy to choose from, including gummy bears and chocolates. You can take a self-guided tour of the factory and peek into the operations floor from a short walkway at the back of the store.

SS Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral

This beautiful cathedral was built in the 1970s. If you’re in town on a Sunday morning you can pop in and take a look. Otherwise, you can take a tour during the annual Greek Festival, held in the middle of July.
