Here is a video that proves it. This neat little video showcases all that the Kalamazoo area has to offer in terms of industry, culture, education (Kalamazoo Promise, anyone?), and recreation. Is this a commercial for Kalamazoo and southwest Michigan? Yes, I believe it is. Is there anything wrong with getting people interested in visiting or living here? Not in my book.

If you would rather, you could watch this performance of "I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo" by Glenn Miller & his Orchestra.
