Great Riverfront Towns in Southwest Michigan


Allegan Michigan has a beautiful boardwalk system in downtown along the river.

There are a few communities that really have beautiful downtown riverfront areas.  There are several towns in the Southwest, Michigan region that this is a highlight of the downtown. 

Cities such as Battle Creek, Allegan, Kalamazoo and Marshall have beautiful riverfront walkways and sometimes shops along the rivers of their downtown district.  Allegan has a magnicent boardwalk and old iron bridge in the downtown district, and Battle Creek with its overlooks, benches and shade trees make for an inviting stroll along the river. 

A river going through downtown is a great highlight that not every community can boast, and not all that have them present them in the same way.  The ones that do feature them bring a sense of beauty into the district that brings people back for more.  There is nothing quite like a seasonal stroll along a beautiful river in a downtown district.
