Portage

Signup for Email Alerts
As home to Southwest Michigan's largest enclosed mall and an extensive commercial strip Portage draws those born to shop. But it is the city's commitment to what's outside those shops - - its green spaces and blue waters - that make Portage a place people love to call home. More than 60 linear trail miles give cyclists and walkers plenty of places to go. Some 800 acres of protected land is open to the public. Seven lakes offer water sports and fishing. The network of parks and trails, used for walking, cycling and canoeing, are proof of the city's commitment to balancing green spaces and workplaces, workplaces that include some of the world's biggest names. The city is home to the manufacturing headquarters of Pfizer, a world leader in biopharmaceuticals; Stryker, a medical technology leader; and the U.S. Headquarters of Mann+Hummel Group, a major corporation in automotive components. Portage enjoys the benefits of being close to Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo College and Kalamazoo Community College -- all of which contribute to the city's highly educated workforce. Restaurants and bars are a mixture of nationally recognized establishments and local favorites. During the summer months cultural events are offered in venues in each of the city's parks.
