    Living in Antwerp Township is a great family place to live. While shopping and nightlife are limited, Kalamazoo is just a 20 min drive away.
    Review Antwerp Township
    Most of the businesses are mom-and pop shops with lots of character and charm. There are not a huge variety of stores in Paw Paw, and I often have to go into a larger city to find what I am looking for, but the owners are friendly!
    The reason why the stores are okay is because it is a small town. I know we don't have that many things in this town, but it doesn't mean that they are not popular. For example there is only one "Big T" or one "The Breakfast Place" in Lawton. A lot of people I know even when they are from New York talking to them on Facebook or twitter or any social website or log. They have herd of Lawton because they have tried Big T and The Breakfast Place and they said it was really good. I know it is really bizarre that some big businesses like Bilbo's or Swans don't get that much notice is because they are not as good food or as good as treatment with the staff because people can relate to the staff team and can talk to them as if they knew them for years. just like the whole town. We are so small that we know everyone basically in it. It's not bad because we show neighborly love and we can communicate with each other and help each other out when needed which the whole world needs more of in my point of view.
