Review Arbela Township
The only things there are to worry about are the Blizzards, especially with the weather we've gotten the past two winters. Sometimes driving is really dangerous and it's better to stay home if you don't have a 4x4, but other than that, nothing else really happens weather wise. Always have a winter coat handy, even in May! you never know what Michigan will throw at you.
Since the Birch Run mall is so close, there are always places hiring. It is the largest outdoor shopping mall in America, and they rotate out employees fairly quickly, employing most of the highschools from around the area and college kids home from the summer. The businesses surrounding the mall do well because of all the traffic, and since people come from all around to visit it and Frankenmuth (also about a 15 minute drive from there) the hotels get a lot of business. Most people work in retail, food service, or on the surrounding farms in between popular towns.
Last summer, Donald Trump came to visit my hometown of Birch Run, Michigan for a political rally. Why? Because everyone here is stupid enough to support him. There are no significant opportunities found in other places in Michigan, like Ann Arbor or Midland, for a wonk. Awful place to live if you want to become an intellectual or get a good job.
