Welcome to New Buffalo, Michigan
Warm days, sandy beaches and family fun on Lake Michigan.
Enjoy our water wonderland that is Lake Michigan.
The easy life on a lazy river – walking distance to everything.
Riverfront homes and docks, a stones-throw from the Lake.
The Four Winds Casino Resort never closes.
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 the beach — nightlife and entertainment
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.
