MICHIGAN'S SOUTHWEST SHORE, CURATED

Getaway time is precious. And planning can be a buzzkill. Our ever-evolving travel guide is designed to cut past the clutter so you don’t have to. We vet, triple-check, and only share what moves us. No ads or sponsored content. Just stuff we love.

Produced by a team of lifelong locals and urban expats, we’re unabashed lake geeks. Fans of craft in every form, art in unexpected places, and brilliant, farm-fresh food. We love questions that begin with ‘hey, are you from around here?’

MORE THAN A SUMMER BEACH TOWN

Just 70 miles from downtown Chicago, New Buffalo is the gateway to Michigan and a historic Lake Michigan beach town. But beyond that legacy of summer fun, find a community of hosts and creatives sharing their love of art, culture, craft, and most of all landscape throughout the year. When a city break calls, come by for a visit.
