Beal City Reviews

There is a great education system in place, very small town. Not much for expanding.
Our home is close to a small school that has provided our children with an exceptional education. Mt. Pleasant, 12 miles away, has a variety of extracurricular opportunities for children of all ages. There is a small town feel - everyone knows their neighbors - with the opportunities of a larger town close by.
I love living in this small town!
