For over 100 years, southwestern Michigan has been a weekend getaway haven. With its ample wide beaches and charming lakeside towns, the area of Michigan known as Harbor Country continues to lure weekend visitors. Since the late 1970's, it has also been a popular destination for wine travel fans.

Southwestern Michigan is only about 90 minutes by car from greater Chicago. Interstate 94 takes a gentle north by northeast turn near the Indiana-Michigan state line, tracing the route of historic U.S. 12. Back in the 1930's, this area established its link to Michigan tourism. The first town greeting you upon entering Michigan is friendly and walkable New Buffalo.

With its harbor and compact business district, New Buffalo has long attracted boaters and those seeking a weekend escape. Of the eight communities comprising Harbor Country, New Buffalo feels most like a true town and a defined destination. Waterfront development has been carefully planned and monitored, ensuring the charm of this community for generations to come.

Less than a half mile down the road is the fascinating and ever evolving Round Barn Winery and Distillery. As the name implies, part of the facility is housed in an Amish built round barn, which is frequently used for weddings and special events. Not only can you sample wine at Round Barn, but distilled spirits and microbrews as well.

The other four wineries in this area are also quite near one another, making Harbor Country perfect for an afternoon of leisurely wine travel and tasting. Free Run Cellars, Domaine Berrien, Lemon Creek, and Hickory Creek all offer finely crafted wines that will appeal to even the most discriminating wine lover.

Michigan is the 38th state to take up a state wide smoking ban in restaurants. Not only will you not be allowed to smoke in restaurants, but any public place that employs people. This applies to places such as malls, concert halls, nursing homes and anyplace else that serves food or beverages or employs at least one person. For years, non-smokers have been complaining about the effects of second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke has been proven to cause many diseases, including lung cancer and upper respiratory infections. Waiters and waitresses have been trying to get away from second-hand smoke as well as patrons.

Unfortunately, the best viable option is for the smoker to take a good look at their health and situation and try to quit smoking. Kicking the habit will afford many benefits to a person's health. Easier breathing, less colds and infections, and healthy lungs, to name a few. Over 5,000 Michiganians lose their life each year due to tobacco. Health care costs are soaring. Michigan's ban on smoking will help drive down these costs for non-smokers who previously were exposed to the second-hand smoke.
