New-Buffalo is a lovely community that sits on the shores of the Galien River and Lake Michigan, and is considered the gateway to southwest Michigan's beaches. This lovely historic town was incorporated as a village in 1836, and today has one of the largest refuge harbors on the Great Lakes. The village streets are lined with unique specialty shops, art galleries, and restaurants, and the soft, sandy beach at Lakefront Park is an ideal spot to picnic as you watch the sailboats in the harbor. There is plenty to do in New Buffalo such as golf, swimming, hiking and biking, and the area has some of the best fishing for salmon, trout and perch to be found in the Mid West. The beautiful beach at New Buffalo is within walking distance of downtown, and has a nice play area for children, a refreshment stand, restrooms and a boardwalk atop the dunes. New Buffalo is also home to the annual St. Mary's Festival, a three-day event with carnival rides, food and games. The town of New Buffalo is easy to reach along Interstate 94, and is located southwest of Kalamazoo between Benton Harbor and the Indiana State line.

New Buffalo Weather & Climate

Northwest Indiana has a four-season climate typical of most of the Midwest, with a few exceptions due to its proximity to Lake Michigan. Cold air passing over the warmer lake water induces precipitation in the lee of Lake Michigan in autumn and winter. As a result of this phenomena, heavy winter precipitation, especially snowfall, can amount to as much as 76 inches, compared to 14 inches in the south. Lake-related snowfall and cloudiness can extend to central Indiana in winter, driven by strong northwesterly winds. In the spring, daily maximum temperatures decrease northward in northern Indiana because of the cooling effect of the Lake. Average daily minimum temperatures in autumn are higher in northwestern Indiana near the warmer lake surface than farther south.
