Michigan's premier lake destination, Harbor County, is just an hour from Chicago but a world away from the hustle of the city. Understated and unspoiled, Harbor County retains its natural appeal.
Lake Michigan boaters have always received a special welcome in New Buffalo. Only 40 miles by boat from Chicago — with easy entry and protected access — this quaint residence-oriented town and picturesque harbor provide an ideal home base for waterfront living and a welcome weekend escape.
A quick walk from The Peninsula takes you to downtown New Buffalo. Just minutes from your front door, you’ll find restaurants and shops, the beach and the local Amtrak station — the perfect lakeside village next to the ultimate waterfront homes.
Go boating on the lake. Pick fresh produce at local farms and orchards. Explore exquisite vintages from the dozen wineries that dot the countryside. Discover an amazing array of dining and shopping, arts and culture. It’s all waiting for you in Harbor County.
