New Buffalo, Michigan is located at the mouth of the Galien River on Michigan’s west coast just north of the Indiana border.

“The glorious summertime sunsets along the Lakeshore recall dusk along Florida’s Gulf Coast – except, of course, for the greater likelihood of seeing the aurora borealis after nightfall.” — USA Today

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.

More than a beach town — nightlife and entertainment

New Buffalo is also the location for Southwestern Michigan’s first gambling casino, the Four Winds Casino Resortand Silver Creek Event Center – the place for concerts featuring headliner entertainment plus conferences and special events.
