The whole family will enjoy one-of-a-kind attractions like the Gilmore Car Museum, the Air Zoo, the Capri Drive-In and opportunities to get up close and personal with the animals at Binder Park Zoo. Don’t forget to bring your golf clubs for a perfect day on the course as you experience all Southwest Michigan has to offer.
