Located at the mouth of the Galien River, the town of New
Buffalo has been one of the most popular tourist destinations
in Southwest Michigan for decades. A classic Great Lake
harbor town, this quaint town has many areas to explore, from
its beautiful public beach,
its eight lake and riverside
parks, to its specialty
stores, antiquing, and
fine selection of restaurants.
While there is something to do year round, New Buffalo is
buzzing each summer with non-stop fun and activities. There
are numerous festivals, art fairs, and places to enjoy the
scenery or just sit and “people-watch”.
Buffalo is one of the biggest boating harbors in Southwest
Michigan, complete with an around-the-clock
public boat launch.
