French Lick and West Baden Springs are pretty unique places to see and some nice driving scenery in that part of the state.  Also number of wineries if you're into that sort of thing.  
A lot of the smaller Indiana colleges have some really nice campuses and you'd have the grounds pretty much to yourself for walking tours.  And that college campus in Bloomington is always worth a visit!!
If you decide on the Dunes, I'd suggest adding a visit to New Buffalo, MI at the marina.  Normally, you'd see some very large and very expensive boats at the dock although not sure with the current COVID-19 situation and I think Michigan is under even a stricter lockdown mode.  
If you have kids and depending on their ages, a trip to Fair Oaks Farm on I-65 north of Laffyette might be interesting.  
 
 

We would have some kids. Good ideas though. Thanks

Anyone have any day trip recommendations from Indy area? Thought about hitting the dunes. Have hit McCormicks Creek. Wondering what else to consider

My wife and I went to Mounds State Park yesterday. Not very big, but pretty cool experience. There are ancient (150 B.C.) native american structures, decent trails (I'd recommend the boardwalk, trail 2), and its a pretty short drive. You may have already been, but being from Southern Indiana I hadn't and really enjoyed myself. 

Anybody have any recommendations for kayaking? We bought some that should be delivered this week and want to take them out this weekend. We were thinking summit lake state park (we are wanting to go to all the state parks) but I haven't heard anything about it.

Chain O' Lakes State Park in NE Indiana is a very nice place for small boaters. Sounds like it might be a long trip for you to get there, but it's a great park to visit. A number of small lakes with connecting channels.

Here's a DNR link:  https://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/2987.htm

Yep love the Chain O’ Lakes. We have a spot up on Dewart Lake. Been in our family since the channel was dug in 1972. Solid fishing on most all of the lakes.
