Round 3 of Day Trip Ideas: Kalamazoo | Greater Lansing Area Moms

First Grand Rapids, then Detroit with a stop in Auburn Hills and now our travels lead us toward the Kalamazoo area.  This week the drive time is from 50 – 90 minutes – still ample time to grab a quick nap.  While Binder Park Zoo has not reopened, there plenty of other must sees that will keep your family busy the whole day.

KAL-A-MA-ZOOOOOO! And a few nearby adventures near the southwestern direction.
