Welcome to the community of Westville website
You may have just found your home! Located just 15 minutes from Lake Michigan in La Porte county, Westville is a small town just beginning to expand. Our town has an ideal location, with Michigan City to the north, La Porte to the east, and Valparaiso to west, which makes for a wonderful place to live. You are close to bigger cities but far enough to enjoy a rural lifestyle.
Purdue Northwest is just 5 minutes from downtown with easy access to the 80-90 toll road. Hop on the toll road and travel west for 45 minutes to downtown Chicago, perfect for an evening of enjoying the Chicago nightlife. Or travel just 15 minutes to Lake Michigan. Enjoy the wonderful dunes or hangout at the casino. Notre Dame fan? South Bend is approximately 40 minutes to the East on the 80-90 toll road. What more could you ask for in a town!
