Battle Creek Things to Do in
Battle Creek, Michigan, may be best known as the world headquarters of Kellogg’s cereal, but there are plenty of attractions and things to do in Kellogg. Here’s what you need to know before visiting Battle Creak.
Binder Park Zoo
The massive Binder Park Zoo offers diverse experiences including an African savannah with native herds and a petting zoo that lets you pet and feed a giraffe. If you visit it with children, opt for the Tram Ride, rather than trying to hike with kids between the forest, savannah, swamp, hills, and entertainment area.
You can easily spend the day at Binder Park Zoo since the entertainment area includes picnic tables, a snack bar, full restaurant, gift shop, and restrooms. Strollers are available and Binder Park Zoo is handicap accessible. There are periodic special exhibits and animal shows. The zoo is open April to October. Binder closes out its year with the Halloween Zoo Boo.
Team U.S. Nationals and Air Show of Battle Creek
If you visit at right time of year, typically at the end of June and early July, you can catch the week-long annual Team U.S. Nationals and Air Show of Battle Creak event, which features airshows, hot air balloon rides, and fireworks. There’s an air field devoted to musical performances and the Skerbeck Carnival with rides for children and adults. Enjoy shows by the motorcycle stunt team. The event also offers a half marathon and a 5K race.
Full Blast Recreation Center
Full Blast Recreation Center offers more than 150,000 square feet of family entertainment open year around. You’ll see the water park and water slides from the road, but Full Blast also offers three basketball courts, three volleyball courts, a video arcade, a laser tag arena, a running track, rock wall, a fitness center, indoor and outdoor play areas, and water wars.
No More Kellogg’s Tours
The tours mentioned on some sites at the Kellogg factory ended in 1987. Cereal City USA replaced these tours, but it closed in 2007. The Battle Creek History Museum is under construction. When completed, it will feature Kellogg’s and Post exhibits, as well as information on other local cereal companies.
