    Benzonia Township Reviews

    2 reviews
    Beulah is a small town. Extremely beautiful with varying levels of things to do. From hiking and swimming to snowboarding and snowmobiling, it is filled with adventure. However, there is few job opportunities due to the size of the town. The people are very friendly with good family values. I would recommend visiting or choosing to make this a permanent place to stay.
    Review Benzonia Township
    Crime, of course, can not be one hundred percent avoided. Although in my many years of living here I have heard of very few cases involving anything greater than a speeding ticket (mostly given to teens having a little fun on dirt roads). Officers are friendly and polite.
