Battle Creek, MI

Battle Creek is best known as the birthplace of cornflakes cereal which was invented by Will Keith Kellogg in 1906. This U.S. city is located in Southcentral Michigan and is home to over 51,000 residents and three major cereal companies including Kellogg Company. At one point, Battle Creek had over 100 different cereal companies. On a good day, visitors may be able to smell the scent of cereal in the air. Battle Creek was home to a basic training site for American soldiers during World War I. Battle Creek got its name from a skirmish between government land surveyors and Native Americans. Popular attractions in Battle Creek include Binder Park Zoo, Fort Custer Recreation Area, Leila Arboretum, Goguac Lake, and the Kingsman Museum. Visitors can visit W.K. house sites in Kellogg Park by appointment only. Battle Creek has fun special events, such as the World’s Longest Breakfast Table, the Taste of Battle Creek, and the International Festival of Lights.
