Congratulations on the move! Kalamazoo is a great place to live. The three best places to live in Kalamazoo, MI are Oakland-Winchell, Hill N’Brook, and Westnedge Hill.
Let’s dig into those three areas!
  • Oakland-Winchell: ranked Michigan’s 2nd best neighborhood to live in; home to Western Michigan University; it is located on the southwestern side of the city.
  • Hill N’Brook: located south of Oakland-Winchell; this neighborhood has a preschool, an elementary school, and two high schools; it has a lot of luxury homes.
  • Westnedge Hill: located next to Southside; made up of predominately middle-class homes; it has two private schools, as well as a public school.
