    Algoma Township Reviews

    The businesses in my town of Cedar Springs are great for my needs. We have everything that a town needs and a little more. Several churches, a couple grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, and numerous little shops to cater to the individual needs and desires of the towns residents. We are not lacking in big name companies (i.e. Meijer, Tractor Supply, Speedway, McDonald's, etc.), however, we still hold dear the local businesses of our town. Our many local restaurants and other services gives us that lovely small town feel. That feeling of walking into a store and being welcomed by the owner is a great feeling that cannot be replaced. I love the mixed style of my town. We get the "best of both worlds". The convenience of big companies and the warm feeling of our local business creates the perfect living environment.
    Review Algoma Township
    There are several ways to stay fit and active in my community. Whether you'd rather exercise indoors or outdoors, we have the facilities for both. There are a couple of exercise gyms in our town that provides great access to professional exercise equipment. Also, there are year-round options for outdoor exercise. The Frederick Meijer White Pine Trail is the best and most popular option for this. The trail runs right through our town and is accessible for running, walking, biking, skiing, and other modes of exercise and enjoyment.
    The biggest event for our city is the annual Red Flannel Festival. During the first weekend in October, the town is flooded with red. People come from all over to celebrate our famous festival. We pride ourselves in the historic aspects of the festival as well as current happenings. The festival is one of the oldest in the state, dating back to 1940, and has been enjoyed by residents and visitors of our city for generations. From the tractor show to the corn-hole tournament, carnival rides to the Grand Parade, there is something for everyone at the Red Flannel Festival.
