Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, New Buffalo is a quaint city with a rustic charm. Whether two- or- four-legged, this cozy little town has plenty to offer its inhabitants. Enjoy outdoor activities year-round with gorgeous sights, waterside activities, and even snow-capped trails. You’ll find pet groomers and veterinarians in town, too!
The city's sandy beaches and beautiful harbors are some of its well-known landmarks. Plus, it is only 70 miles away from Chicago. New Buffalo is ideal for pet parents that want a quiet place to unwind for an extended vacation or even a permanent accommodation. The area is happy to welcome furry friends at eateries with outdoor tables, like the Brentwood Tavern or The Terrace Room. You can even stay at a pet-friendly waterfront hotel, where Fido can wet their paws on a secluded, sandy beach. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on public beaches in Michigan.
New Buffalo is also home to eight parks throughout the city, many of which you are welcome to check out with your pooch. However, they’ll probably pre-fur the off-leash dog run over at Shari Asher Memorial Park. The fenced-in area is complete with all the necessities, including water fountains and doggy bags, and gives neighborhood pups a safe place to play!
