New Buffalo

New Buffalo

Since even before Captain Wessel Whittaker’s vessel was run aground near what is now New Buffalo in 1834, the area’s protected harbor and sandy beaches had attracted admiring visitors. But it was Whittaker who envisioned a port city to rival Chicago and his native Buffalo, NY, when he established a permanent community here.

Whether you are a boater seeking safe harbor, an outdoorsmen seeking canoeing and hiking adventure, or are simply looking for respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life with resort flair, you need look no further. Located on the shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Galien River, the port village of New Buffalo offers ample opportunity for shopping, dining, water sports, or just relaxing fun in the sun. And it’s only a bit over an hour from Chicago, by car or by Amtrak train—far enough to get away from it all, but close enough to come just for weekends.
