Shopping in Harbor Country

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Shops in Harbor CountryThe towns around Firefly Resort offer an abundance of shopping options. From boutique shops full of clothes and special trinkets to surf & beach items and antique malls with one-of-a-kind treasures,  there’s something for everyone in Harbor Country!

One can spend an entire weekend shopping in the numerous boutiques. Some of our favorites include Whittaker House in New Buffalo.

If you love the surf and beach lifestyle, a shopping trip to New Buffalo’s Third Coast Surf Shop is in order.

Whether you’re shopping for furniture, art work, jewelry or unique collectibles, the many antique shops and malls along the Red Arrow Highway are paradise for a day of antiquing. The Dunes Antique Center, in Sawyer, houses 70 antique dealers and is a great start for your shopping.

Harbor Country can provide your ultimate shopping getaway and the Firefly Resort is in the center of it all. Spend the day searching for special treasures and then come back to relax in a charming cottage for the night. It’s a perfect pairing.
