    What do you like about Kalamazoo?

    Strong Counter Culture. People don't try to look and act like the people they see on reality TV & MTV (Which is a problem in many other college towns). Very eclectic in living styles. Still a decent number of locally owned businesses.

    What do you dislike about Kalamazoo?

    Entertainment industry jobs not really an option there. Big biz moving in fast & hurting local stores.

    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?

    Kalamazoo's Cafe scene is very strong - Disproportionately strong for the size of the town actually.

    How expensive is it?

    Not very. There are a huge number of college students in Kalamazoo - WMU, K-College, KVCC, etc are all located there - so costs are low if you're willing to live in student dominated areas.

    Is it safe?

    Mostly.

    How is the weather?

    Prepare to do some digging in winter.

    Additional thoughts?

    I cant exactly put my finger on it, but there is something unique about Kalamazoo. Just really pleasant feeling. There are tons of towns that feel like clones from one another... this isn't one of them.
