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.

Real estate Niles MI style has something for just about everyone.

Bungalows, renovated 1930's farmhouses, modern ranches, two-stories and three stories fill the pages of the Niles Michigan real estate classifieds. If you are interested in buying, but you have problems with your credit, we have some suggestions. And, if you are a property owner, who needs to sell quickly, we have some suggestions for you, too.

Niles Michigan real estate is located in Berrien County, just north of the Indiana border, on the banks of the St. Joseph River. The wide range of available properties, with a wide range of prices, makes it difficult to estimate the average price of a home. Median prices are sometimes misleading, because they include undeveloped lots on the low end and corporate retreats on the high end. But, in the most recent updates for median prices of real estate Niles MI was at $124,900 for a home listed with a realtor and $74,798 for foreclosures.

Over the last several years, in all areas of the country, there have been fluctuations in the prices and values of real estate. Niles MI is no exception. So called "financial experts", the people we often rely on to guide us, cannot agree on what exactly is going on. Some say that soon values will go up. Others say not. Many bankers blame the increasing number of foreclosures on decreasing property values, making it difficult or impossible for owners to refinance.

But, that's not all of the different types of real estate Niles MI has to offer. Downtown Niles is a redeveloping area or shops, entertainment and services. They host numerous parades and events. Many downtown homes, at good prices, are included in the Niles Michigan real estate listings. And, if you want more night life, South Bend is very close by and Chicago is just a little farther away.

So, now you know what real estate Niles MI can offer, but you are still concerned about your credit. If you have steady employment, a few thousand dollars for the lease option consideration and are willing to work to improve your credit rating, then you can own a home, probably sooner than you think. You probably know that you can afford the monthly payments, so what are you waiting for?

Michigan can make a great vacation destination if you are into getting away from it all. It incorporates miles and miles of beaches, sand dunes, lush green forests, and of course... the Great Lakes. There are four regions of Michigan which are the Upper Peninsula, Northern Michigan, Mid-Michigan, and Downstate.

Michigan in the summer can be pretty exciting with activities such as canoeing down protected rivers through lush forests, motorboating or sailing on its many lakes, or fly fishing on a scenic stream. All in all there are around 12,000 lakes in the state including Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and a small amount of Lake Erie.

If you are looking for a 'city vacation' in Michigan there is Detroit, the largest city, and Lansing, the state capital. In these bigger cities you'll find more city-like things to do with their many historic landmarks, fine dining, and cultural experiences.
