Kalamazoo offers so much more than a memorable name. The town offers an ideal combination of energy and innovation with a convivial atmosphere. Situated in Southwest Michigan, around two hours from Chicago, Kalamazoo features a vibrant and progressive downtown that provides the platform where you can experience quality dining, eclectic shops and galleries, and live entertainment. Besides that, the town’s close proximity to several lakes implies plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities and festivals such as Kalamazoo Country Fair. The Kalamazoo Valley Museum is another famous tourist spot. The highlights of the museum includes a Digistar planetarium, simulated missions to space via the Challenger Learning Center, a 2,300 year-old mummy, and the Science in Motion gallery.
