Spring in Kalamazoo

In Kalamazoo, you’ll find a unique and exciting city vibe, but with the comfort of warm people, an easy-going pace of life, and truly beautiful countryside. With abundant lakes, trails, and parks and a walkable downtown that boasts the nation’s first outdoor pedestrian shopping mall, there’s a tailored experience for every interest. When you visit Kalamazoo, you can go for a hike in the morning, grab lunch and a beer at Bell’s Brewery and catch a show at the historic State Theatre at night, all without spending more than thirty minutes in your car. Downtown Kalamazoo offers nearly infinite things to do: unique shops, affordable, award-winning restaurants, and exciting venues that host nationally recognized acts.


Just minutes from downtown, you’ll find breathtaking nature, with endless opportunities to bike, hike, camp, and kayak. The area is known for craft beer, notably Bell’s Brewery, a pioneer in the craft beer industry since 1985. Kalamazoo County is also home to world-class museums and attractions including the Smithsonian affiliated Air Zoo Aerospace and Science Museum and the Gilmore Car Museum, North America’s largest automobile museum. In Kalamazoo, you get to enjoy big city excitement, with a twist of easy-going comfort.
