For in-depth information on the area we recommend contacting the local Harbor Country Chamber office at (800) 362-7251 or 469-5409, at 530 S. Whittaker St, New Buffalo. Their website is www.harborcountry.org and can be accessed by clicking the button above anytime you see it, or their www link above. Contact them before your arrival and ask them for The Harbor Country Guide as it has a wealth of information about this area, and the surrounding country side as well. Naturally Beaching is King! But the area is also know for its biking and hiking, golfing and shopping (mostly antiques or the outlet mall in Michigan City, dining and cooking out and just hanging out.
For kids we have the usual putt-putts, go-cart tracks, bowling alleys, there are a couple of water parks with in 40 minutes or so, a curious kids museum in St Joseph (about 30 minutes North), a great Timber Town Playground in Three Oaks, but lets face it, its hard to beat the beach on a hot summer day. Movie theaters are 30 minutes either direction, unless your kids are into Art Films at the Vickers Theater in Three Oaks, and of course there are plenty of video rentals, to fill up those VCR’s we have at all the houses for those rainy days.
There are many places and activities appropriate for children and Adults in Harbor Country and the surrounding areas. Special events are planned well ahead of time so that you may co-ordinate your vacation with these events. The Chamber will have a calendar so give them a call or visit their website.
