Discovering Alma, Michigan—Scotland, USA


From exploring the well-preserved architecture of the downtown to enjoying the arts at the Heritage Center, Alma is an experience all its own.

Also known as Scotland, USA, Alma is steeped in history. Begin your day with a stroll through the Downtown Historic District, where the city's past comes to life through its architecture, local shops and eateries. The preserved buildings provide a glimpse into Alma's past, making it an ideal starting point for your journey.

For a serene and picturesque experience, head to Alma College. Wander through its well-maintained grounds, take in the beauty of the campus and catch a glimpse of student life. The Alma College Center for the Performing Arts and the Flora Kirsch Beck Art Gallery are destination spaces for the performing and visual arts, offering a schedule of concerts, lectures and exhibits.

Alma College embraces the Scotland, USA, designation with pride. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the variety of athletic events as the Alma Scots take on their rivals across an array of sports. Experience the passion for sports that permeates the community. Alma College is also home to the Alma Highland Festival, a celebration of the area's Scottish traditions and heritage.

For those who prefer outdoor adventures, head to The Runway DGC for a few rounds of disc golf. Nature lovers can explore the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail or unwind at Riverside Park, providing a peaceful setting for picnicking, walking trails and enjoying views of the Pine River.

Located in the historic Wright Opera House, the Block House is a veritable entertainment complex that includes cuisine, craft drinks and esports leagues. You can even “book an experience” for a group.
