Battle Creek, Michigan, is the home of the Binder Park Zoo, which features a lion exhibit, giraffe feeding and other animal exhibits. Breakfast diners are popular in Battle Creek, and you could start out your day with a made-to-order omelet, crustless quiche or a hearty plate of over-easy eggs, whole-wheat toast, bacon and orange juice. Battle Creek is also home to several sports bars, where you could enjoy some of the locally caught lake perch or catfish, which is often beer-battered, fried and served with coleslaw and French fries. Surprisingly, Battle Creek has many small Mexican restaurants. These family-owned and -operated restaurants offer plates of tortilla chips with pico de gallo as an appetizer, followed by a filling meal of carne asada and arroz amarillo.
