Go to the Coast 

If the weather is nice, take a 30 minute car ride to South Haven. It's got a two great Lake Michigan beaches, a peer, and lots of little shops. It's easy to find -- from Kalamazoo, just follow M-43 East until you hit the water. South Haven is a great place swim of course, but you can also just head over there for dinner and then watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. Park your car on the little road above the South Beach and watch enjoy the beauty of watching the sun disappear. For the webpage of the South Haven Visitors Bureau, go to http://www.southhaven.org/
