Kalamazoo is conveniently located on Interstate 94 between Detroit and Chicago and is served by two airlines through the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport, a 15-minute drive from downtown Kalamazoo. Five major routes carry traffic into downtown, along with train and bus service from downtown to all major midwestern destinations and beyond.
The restaurants, nightclubs, microbreweries, and specialty shops downtown create the kind of energy that only a vibrant city center can offer. Downtown Kalamazoo is home to five live-stage theatres which draw more than 150,000 people downtown each year, as well as the Epic Center, a performing arts collaborative center in the heart of downtown.
The Kalamazoo Valley Museum attracts visitors from throughout the Midwest. Baseball, soccer, rugby and football games are played in a newly renovated sports/river park on the edge of downtown.
