Bus Tours

Whether you need a place to stay overnight or a stop for food and entertainment, Battle Creek is a great option for your motorcoach adventure.

A convenient location

Calhoun County is located along I-94, halfway between Chicago and Detroit. Avoid big-city traffic and car jams in Battle Creek, Marshall and Albion.

We help with room blocks

The sales staff at Calhoun County Visitors Bureau knows everything about navigating the local hotels. Let them help you book room blocks, whether your meeting is for 4 or 4,000. Put in an RFP to ask about availability.

Free tours

The Calhoun County Visitors Bureau offers free step-on tours in Battle Creek. Learn about the Kellogg Brothers, the Cereal City, the Underground Railroad and Sojourner Truth. Or if your group is up for a walking tour, downtown Battle Creek has some interesting art, including murals and a giant portrait of Abraham Lincoln made out of pennies. Tours include a stop at the Battle Creek Welcome Center, where we have a gift store, Cereal History Exhibit, bathrooms and drinks for sale.

If you have a specific interest or would like to tour Marshall or Albion, submit an RFP and we can help connect you with an expert guide.

Skip the chain

While Calhoun County does have a lot of the standards when it comes to chain restaurants, you can also pick a memorable experience. Two group favorites are Schuler’s Restaurant in Marshall and Clara’s on the River in Battle Creek. Both have a long past. 

Schuler’s has been in business for more than 100 years and that’s been more than enough time to perfect the recipe for their famous cheese dip. 

Clara’s on the River was once a train station – the tracks might be gone now, but the building’s unique style has endured. Inside, you’ll find decorations that speak to the station’s history in Battle Creek.

If FireKeeper’s Casino and Hotel is on your itinerary, make sure you don’t miss out on the food. They take feeding people seriously. They source the best ingredients, and it shows, whether it’s the chorizo nacho sauce at the sports bar or the steaks at the fine dining restaurant.

Lots to do

How much time do you have? Because we don’t want you to miss all the fun things to do in Calhoun County.

Feed giraffes at Binder Park Zoo or get your Vegas on at FireKeepers Casino. Cornwell’s Turkeyville offers dinner AND a show. The imaginative sculptures of Fantasy Forest at Leila Arboretum are a popular roadside attraction. Station 66 offers a slice of road trip nostalgia, along with ice cream in summer and pumpkin doughnuts in fall.
