We’re plugging along in February, but it’s starting to feel like Spring! A high of 55 degrees is forecasted for later today!

Michigan Indoor Waterparks

Need a cure for cabin fever? Check out our Guide to Indoor Waterparks that we published earlier this week. We’ve broken out our calendar and are working on scheduling a getaway ourselves. Lots of great options within a good driving distance from Kalamazoo.
