New Buffalo Michigan Photos Updated

New Buffalo Michigan Lighthouse and Beach

I added some new photos to the New Buffalo photo gallery.

New Buffalo is a great place. It’s a short drive from Chicago so it’s great for a day trip or a weekend getaway. It’s a small beach town at the Southwest corner of Michigan with some nice little shops and restaurants. One of my favorite places there was the Stray Dog Restaurant. It caught fire in the summer of 2012 and was torn down. Good news is it’s being rebuilt so hopefully they keep some of the atmosphere that made it great.

One of the more familiar sights is the lighthouse. It sits at the entrance to the beach among the rolling dunes and beach grass. Because the lighthouse is on land instead of a Jetty it makes for some unique pictures.
