Things To Do

Kalamazoo and its surrounding communities offer such a wide variety of activities that no listing does them justice. Instead, we have included a few of our favorite dining, film, live theatre, pubs and wineries, bookstores and museum suggestions, with additional links to help you plan your visit.

For those starting your Michigan vacation here, we suggest:

  • 1001 Photos of Michigan - where Doreen Lawrence and Suzie Martin, share photos and information about their favorite state in a daily format
  • Great Lakes Gazette - where Kath Usitalo writes about activities in both the lower and upper peninsulas.
  • Michigan Pics - with daily photos of the great state of Michigan.

Saffron [New]

If you like Indian Food – this is the place. We tried the lunch buffet with a variety of meat and vegetarian dishes. Food was hot, tasty, and filling. The salad (a cross between fruit and savory lettuce) was fresh and different. The vegetarian options were varied with their own particular tastes.

Sojourner Truth Monument

The Sojourner Truth Monument Project is a collaborative effort representing the shared vision of several organizations and individuals in the community — inspired by a research and development process that began in 1993 by the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women (NANBPW).
