Welcome to New Buffalo, Michigan
“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.
