Birch Run Reviews

Birch Run is a very inviting town with lots to do! It's right in the center of Saginaw and Flint, also close to Frankenmuth so there is always something to do! Also directly in Birch Run is the Premium Outlets, the largest outdoor mall in the Midwestern United States. There are also a lot of places to eat at, and more coming soon as the town is increasing in size.

Birch Run is a small community located in Saginaw County, Michigan. It hosts the Birch Run Premium Outlets which is a major tourist attraction. The town is very small and everybody one practically knows each other. It is a great place to reside and it has all your basic needs just a few minutes apart. The Birch Run Area School District is a great district offering your children high-quality schooling. The town is very safe and is friendly to all.
Birch Run is pretty small, but it's a pretty decent place to grow up in. I have gone to school here since kindergarten and have enjoyed my time here for the most part.
