Local Entertainment, Shopping, and Dining

The Preserve is minutes away from downtown New Buffalo, which itself is at the heart of Harbor Country. Restaurants range from casual to fine dining. The most popular restaurant in Harbor Country, The Stray Dog, is just a short walk from all the residences of the Preserve. Antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and gift shops can be found in every direction. In nearby Three Oaks, entertainment options include both the Vickers Theater – an art film house, and a  performing arts venue. Also close by is the Four Winds Casino (just two miles down the road from the Preserve), and local pubs, some of which have live music. 

 Check out Harbor Country's website to find places to shop, eat, and drink!
