Tell me your favorite things to do in New Buffalo/Union Pier

My family has rented a cabin for a week in July in Union Pier. We so excited! We've been to the area before for a shorter time, but are excited to have a full week in the middle of the summer. Our family includes 3 generations--from age 1 to 66.

Below are some things that we've planned already, but I'd love to hear about other people's favorite things to do or places to go!

We're thinking about heading to St. Joesph for a day trip to see Carousel, lots of time at the beach, rent bikes, surf lessons at Waikiki at Wako Beach, outlet malls or casino if rainy, ice cream at Oink's, train store, burgers at Redamak's.

Any other ideas? Is there a pool somewhere as well?

Thanks for the tips! Is there a place we can go for a boat ride? We don't want to deal with the hassle of renting a boat, but it would be nice to take a boat ride-pontoon or something like that?

Also, any spa recommendations?

Don't know if you are wine drinkers? Lots of local wineries nearby for tasting if the grownups can sneak away in small groups Let us know if this of interest and I can give you further recommendations.

I haven't been out on this myself - but have seen it lots of nights. The Par-te-tyme boat does perch fishing and sunset cruises. It doesn't say the sunset trip on the website -- but just call and ask. http://www.capthooksportfishing.com/index.asp
