Kalamazoo, MI

Located in Southwest Michigan, the city of Kalamazoo offers a mixture of urban and natural environments. The city is approximately two hours from Chicago and offers dining, shops, galleries, lakes, and outdoor recreation areas. According to the 2010 census, the city has a population of 74,262. Kalamazoo is home to Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College.
