Battle Creek Travel Guide
Welcome to Battle Creek, MI!
Centrally located in Calhoun County, between Chicago and Detroit, Battle Creek is Michigan's third largest city by area. Nicknamed the breakfast cereal capital, much of Battle Creek's global identity is attributed to hosting the head quarters of Kellogg Company and Post Cereal. Visitors can discover educational and entertaining facts about the origin of breakfast cereal while participating in tours at Kellogg's Cereal City USA. Battle Creek also boasts a rich and interesting local history, some of which can be revealed through a trip to the Kimball House Museum. A tour of the Historic Adventist Village enables visitors to peek into the past through tours of homes built in the mid-1800s. Battle Creek is also well known for having a wealth of green space that supports an abundance of outdoor recreational activities. Fort Custer Recreational Area and Kimball Pines County Park are two of the many areas that offer bird watching, boating, hiking, swimming as well as many winter activities.
Binder Park Zoo, open from late April through October, exhibits animals on 50 acres (20 ha) of natural surroundings.
