Make Holidays Magic This Year!
The Kalamazoo House will be decorated in full holiday splendor beginning November 21st, this year. If you haven't seen the house in holiday dress, now would be a great time to plan ahead as some holiday shows sell out early. Make the holidays truly special: Stroll through Bronson Park on your way to a lovely holiday meal, party, or New Vic production of "A Christmas Carol", or Wizards of Winter at the State Theatre--all within walking distance! There is so much to do and see in downtown during the holidays, and you can walk to it all!
Combine a stay at the fully-decorated Kalamazoo House, and ...
- Stroll through beautifully lit Bronson Park on your way to amazing dining, brews, and nightlife.
- Enjoy Skiing at Bittersweet or Timber Ridge.
- Buy Local while experiencing downtown shopping, Santa's Workshop, The Holly Jolly Trolley (to bounce you around in comfort), oh, and the Brew Bus if you'd rather skip it all and bounce/walk to breweries (hey, they sell gifts) from our Inn.
Or make memories with one of the following shows and events:
