Bath is a very tight knit community with a small town feel, where everyone knows your name. Where neighbors look out for one another and are always willing to lend a helping hand. There are several qauint chapels and churches, a community hall with a food pantry, and a Farmers Market which is held every Thursday afternoon and is open to the public. They also have a pizza shop, library, convenience store, cozy diner and small drinking establishment. So, if you're looking for a friendly, quiet community to raise a family or just out of the the hussle and bussel world of the city Bath is a great place to be.
Review Bath Charter Township
I live in a college apartment surrounded with an college environment . It's exactly what you'd expect from weekly pool parties, 24 hour gyms and an open area for physical activities, occasional drunk students on weekends being rowdy, and of course roommates that will become your closes friends in life. The quality of living in here the past 2 years has been satisfactory and i wouldn't want to change any of the experience if i had the chance, but in recent months the apartment complexes has come under new management and along with new regulations and rules. Quality of living here has dropped since. Rent on the rise, ridiculous fee for being locked out on their accord, and unhelpful service are just a few to say. The area of East Lansing is a place you would ideally want to be in in your early 20's and I feel like my time here will be some of the best spent time of my life, but for the apartment complexes if they don't change up their act it will continue to go down hill.
I like where I live, it has everything I need and is in the perfect location in-between my school in Bath and my life in East Lansing. However, it is sometimes boring, with a lack of activities and community events going on year-round, but it seems to be picking up. There are also many people moving into the neighborhood who seem to attract trouble, often causing the police to show up.
