Tours in Kalamazoo

Stroll through Kalamazoo and you’ll glimpse the roots of our past and the promise of our future. Several commercial and public buildings downtown, including City Hall, possess the crisp geometry and surface ornaments of Art Deco—an eclectic design style born during the Jazz Age. Residential architecture ranges from the prairie style of Frank Lloyd Wright to ornate Victorian mansions in our charming neighborhoods.

Peek into the legacy of early automobile ingenuity by taking a driving tour. More than twenty different makes of automobiles were built in Kalamazoo and our surrounding areas, and many of these factory buildings still stand today. While you’re on the road, you can also check out our public murals that depict emerging artists and an energetic community spirit.
