Augusta and Galesburg
Much of Kalamazoo’s small-town charm can be found in its hidden gems, from the historic landmarks and robust antique and vintage scene to the four-season outdoor recreation experiences! The areas of Augusta and Galesburg provide plenty of these types of activities that make for the perfect weekend getaway experience!
Enjoy a live show and performance at the historic Barn Theatre School in Augusta or enjoy a free tour of Bell’s Brewery’s Comstock brewery, designed to allow guests a first-hand look at the brewing process, fermentation and packaging.
If you truly want to get away from the hustle and bustle, we recommend heading to Fort Custer Recreation Area, a 3,033-acre park located in Augusta. The park features three lakes, the Kalamazoo River, a campground, a swimming beach, boat rentals, more than 25 miles of multi-use trails, paddling and fishing opportunities, second-growth forests and remnant areas of prairie. The trail system is popular with mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers and dog sledders.
