When you're looking for Kalamazoo vacations, you'll get the most from this city, rooted in the Colonial-era fur trade. Once known for its diverse manufacturing industry, Kalamazoo boasted the original headquarters of the Gibson guitar company. Today, this Michigan city is famous as a hub for breweries and distilleries, with dozens of establishments brewing up mouthwatering artisanal beverages all around the city.
The Kalamazoo Farmers' Market is the center of activity in the city from May through November, and hosts a variety of tourist-oriented events while it's open. History buffs are in luck when booking Kalamazoo all-inclusive vacations, as the city was once home to the fabled Hopewell Civilization, the ancestral Native Americans who first settled in this area long before the Common Era. If music is more your thing, consider touring the Heritage Guitar factory, housed in the old Gibson buildings. When you're planning flights for holidays and other Kalamazoo hotel deals, be sure to keep an eye on the Western Michigan University's NCAA schedule if you're a sports fan, as home games are a major attraction for residents.
If you're looking for Kalamazoo rental cars, a good place to start is the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport, the arrival point for flights in the area. It's also convenient to the Downtown district, which hosts most of the city's annual events, including its fantastic New Year's Eve celebration. During the winter holidays, be sure to visit the Bank Street Winter Market, open from December to May. Every other year, Kalamazoo hosts the Kalamazoo Animation Festival, and the local Arts Council holds its "Art Hop" gallery events on the first Friday of every month.
