Kalamazoo offers so much more than a memorable name. We effortlessly blend energy and innovation with friendliness and a humble attitude. Located in Southwest Michigan, about two hours from Chicago, Kalamazoo features a vibrant and progressive downtown that sets the stage for quality dining, eclectic shops and galleries, and live entertainment. Plus, you’re never far from lakes and outdoor recreation, festivals, and world-class attractions.

Experience the place with a big city mindset and a small town heart. Once you make the trip, you’ll be back for more. We promise.
