The Kalamazoo Gazette was inspired by the recent announcement of the new 7 Wonders of the World released on 7/7/07 and created their list of the Seven Wonders of Southwest Michigan. It's a quirky piece that they must have needed to fill out the paper for the day as there wasn't enough real news. I found it interesting and I think I should create a Seven Wonders of Michigan list sometime. For now, I'll share their Top Seven for Southwest Michigan.
- Lake Michigan/South Haven Beaches
- Kalamazoo Promise - free college tuition as a graduate of Kalamazoo Public Schools
- State Theatre
- Sunset Auto Theater - Hartford
- a) Kal-Haven Trail; b)Portage Creek Bicentennial Parkway
- Gene The Pumpkin Man
- Plainwell Ice Cream
That's the list for Southwest Michigan as the Kalamazoo Gazette sees it. Feel free to expand or expound on the list in the comments section.
