                  The Battle Creek Enquirer serves south-central Michigan. The city has a developing downtown, a lake with a popular public beach, Binder Park Zoo (where you can feed giraffes by hand) and annual festivals organized around art, cereal and music. Firekeepers Casino Hotel brings in big-name bands and comedians. The area is home to a strong system of parks and trails, including the 3,000-acre Fort Custer Recreation Area, a state-run site that offers trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and dog-sledding. Battle Creek is within easy driving distance of Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Lansing and Lake Michigan's beautiful beaches and sits on a train line that can get you to Chicago in less than three hours.
