Very quiet, small town where everyone knows your name. Bath has a quaint diner, a cozy bar, a corner store where you can purchase gasoline to groceries. The post office and public library keep crazy hours and may be closed if business is slow. However, if a community based town with caring, considerate, generous down home folk is what you're looking for then look no further than Bath, MI.
Review Bath
Small town with great community. People are very friendly and helpful. Not much to do in the town but very close are tons of things to do!
This is a great little town with a very friendly atmosphere. I enjoy living out in the country but still being close to East Lansing night life and restaurants.
