The name Kalamazoo is often synonymous with mythical worlds, so much so that the phrase “Yes! There really is a Kalamazoo” has become a type of unofficial town motto. To those who hail from this mid-sized west Michigan town, Kalamazoo is a place rich in history, full of beauty and unique in culture. As a center for higher learning, accompanied by an ever-growing art scene and a bountiful harvest of craft beer breweries, natives of Kalamazoo are often a well-educated, eclectic crowd. Good food, delicious drinks and memorable entertainment are all a part of the culture of Kalamazoo. Conveniently located equidistantly between both Chicago and Detroit, be sure to make time for a stop in “the Zoo” the next time you’re passing through.
