Just as Heritage Community has grown throughout the years, so has our beloved city. A small town with big feel, life in Kalamazoo revolves around the people who call it home. Whether they’re exploring beautiful trails, expanding their taste buds in locally owned downtown Kalamazoo restaurants or at the renowned Bell’s Brewery, or taking in all the sights and sounds of the city’s thriving arts and entertainment scene, locals know, and visitors quickly realize, that Kalamazoo is a city bursting with creativity.
Explore destinations like Bronson Park — a place often referred to as Kalamazoo’s “front porch.” The city’s museums like the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and Valley Museum embrace nature, history, education and art to ignite your imagination. Feeling creative? Attend a workshop at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center or Glass Art Kalamazoo. Live music and performance art is abundant downtown. From stage shows to the ballet and symphony orchestras, there’s no shortage of live entertainment to enjoy.
