With custom brewed beer, ale and even coffee, Walking trails, B&B's and plenty of history. Kalamazoo has made the list of places to visit in 2017. We all love Kalamazoo for different reasons. From Henderson Castle to Bell's Brewery. Some like the city streets and shopping malls. Still others like the college town feel.

A recent article in Viewfinder magazine listed Kalamazoo among the 17 must see cities in the United States. Here is what they had to say,

The appeal: Home to more than 10 local breweries, this Michigan city is earning a name for itself on the craft brew scene.
Stay: A place that looks like a life-sized doll house, The Kalamazoo House Bed & Breakfast offers a fairytale setting in a restored 1878 Victorian home.
Do: Take a tour of Bell’s Brewery, one of the oldest craft breweries east of Colorado. Spend the afternoon sipping the Kalamazoo Stout and Oatsmobile Ale.
Play: Trek some of the 13 trails at Kalamazoo Nature Center, where you can romp along the prairie and forest terrain.
Eat: Start your day off the right way with an order of the Five Alarm Omelet and fresh brewed coffee at Studio Grill, a local favorite.

For me, it is the history as I like to explore the buildings around town.
