NEW BUFFALO MICHIGAN TRAVEL & VISITORS GUIDE
New Buffalo is located at the mouth of the Galien River on Michigan's west coast just north of the Indiana border.
It is about a 90-minute drive from Chicago and the first stop for many visitors to Michigan entering from Indiana on eastbound Interstate 94.
New Buffalo greets visitors with a large and modern refuge harbor, an around-the-clock public boat launch, and a full service transient dock facility. There are plenty of shops, places to stay, places to eat, and recreational opportunities — making it an ideal place to live or play.
New Buffalo is also the location for Southwestern Michigan's first gambling casino, the Four Winds Casino Resort, Southwest Michigan's only Hard Rock Cafe mixing food, live entertainment and rock-n-roll memorabilia into a high energy night spot and Silver Creek Event Center – the place for concerts featuring headliner entertainment plus conferences and special events.
