New Home Communities in Kalamazoo-Battle Creek

Life is just better in Kalamazoo. It's hard to explain why, but if you're here to compare this town with another, we can tell you that beautiful, historic, and cost-effective Kalamazoo wins on many quality-of-life issues. It has two major institutions of higher learning, Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College, and the college and university not only bring cultural prestige to Kalamazoo, they also contribute to the town's well-educated workforce. If you're an entrepreneur, this is a good place to start a business. It's also a great place to volunteer for, or benefit from, the local amenities. The Library Journal named the Kalamazoo Library their 2002 "Library of the Year." Top it all off with fun, off-beat festivals and fairs year-round, like the Wine and Harvest Festival and the Blueberry Festival. There's clearly something special about this town.

 

WMU students may only live here from September to June, but Kalamazoo itself is a full-time student of the arts and sciences. Don't miss the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, which specializes in American art, with artists like Andy Warhol, William Merritt Chase, Helen Frankenthaler, and glass master Dave Chihuly informing the collection, and exhibitions that run the gamut from classical Chinese art to modern Michigan folk art. That may sound good to you, but what if you're not sure if your kids can handle a few hours of looking at art? Better try the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, where touching the exhibits is encouraged. Slightly older kids will go wild for the antique aircraft on display at Kalamazoo Air Zoo. With 50 different airplanes and even several fun rides to get you into the spirit of flying (like the biplane ride, the ferris wheel ride, and the 3D space shuttle ride), it will be hard to leave the museum without a renewed appreciation for aviation and space flight.

On the weekends you'll also want to try visiting a local farmer's market. There are many in the area, starting with the Kalamazoo Farmers' Market, which should be proof of the area's enduring connection to the land. Experiencing that connection doesn't have to be boring, either. Take the kids to experience farm life at Gull Meadow Farms. Whether you're picking pumpkins or apples, you're sure to have a fun day out together as a family. If you're looking for more adult-oriented fun, the area's wineries and breweries are worth a second look. Bell's Brewery is the most famous, but don't discount the Lawton Ridge Winery, Peterson and Sons, Warner Vineyards, St. Julian, and Tempo Vino. And that's just on the wine end of things. Beer drinkers will love Bell's Eccentric Cafe, but also the Old Hat Brewery and Grill, and the Old Peninsula Brewpub.

Eating well-- in addition to drinking well --is also highly prized in Kalamazoo. A few restaurants that stand out from the pack include the Food Dance, dedicated to providing entrees made with fresh, local ingredients. If you want "old-school" ambiance, the Old Burdick's Bar and Grill is your ticket. Local favorite Rustica also has an inviting atmosphere, but here it will feel a little more upscale. Take out someone you want to impress for a steak dinner at Rustica, and you'll likely have his or her ear for a long time.

New Home Source welcomes you to Kalamazoo. It may have a funny name, but it's a great place to live. Let us help you get started off right, in a brand-new home from a top local home builder.
