Everyone who ever set foot in a grocery store should be familiar with Kellogg. The name is plastered on pretty much everything, from cereal to Eggos. Consider making a trip to the Michigan town where the Kellogg brothers lived when they created modern cereal.

 

Battle Creek, Michigan, lies west of Detroit in the center of the state. It was the hometown of John Preston and Will Keith Kellogg, and the center of the duo’s separate business operations for years.

 

John Kellogg came into sole ownership of Battle Creek Sanitarium. The health resort attracted thousands of visitors who consulted with the on-site doctors. The sanitarium was the setting for John and Will’s work to invent wheat flakes, and cereal as we know it today.

 

Battle Creek has a bunch of attractions dedicated toward its history as the center of cereal, but there is plenty more going on as well. Stop by the Cereal History Exhibit for a more comprehensive look at the history of cereal.

 

There are several breweries that call Battle Creek home, so make sure to stop by if you are a beer aficionado.

Battle Creek might not be able to rival major cities like Chicago and Philadelphia, but it has a charm all its own, and is worth visiting for its historical significance alone.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
