Many of Kalamazoo’s attractions are within easy reach of Shelbyville, making it a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two of the places not to miss are the fascinating Bittersweet Ski Resort and the remarkable Regent Theatre. And don’t miss Griswold Auditorium and the Gilmore Car Museum.
Nearby Waldo Stadium is the perfect place to experience Kalamazoo’s passion for football, and to see local heroes, the WMU Broncos, in action. On match days follow the procession of brown and gold, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fellow sports lovers in the nearby pubs and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, think about booking a room close by in one of the area’s many accommodation options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Hyatt Place Grand Rapids-South, Wyoming, the Baymont Inn & Suites Grand Rapids SW/Byron Center, and the popular Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Grand Rapids - South.
