"A reflection of the state"

Unfortunately, like all of Michigan, Kalamazoo is having its economic problems. However, the city as a whole is still a great place that has a nice homely feel. With Kalamazoo it really is dependent upon where you live in the city as to how your experience will be. If you live near Portage, you will have a lot more shopping options than if you lived near the outskirts such as D-Ave. However, people tend to be pretty friendly no matter where you go.

While Kalamazoo does have its problems, it is still a great city for anyone to get their start.
