Bowne Township Reviews

there is a relaxed and cozy atmosphere in my neighborhood. Everyone there loves the country within reach of a bigger town and the freedom that comes with it. I'd chose to live in a similar area but a little closer to town or city life. I think this a very very great place to live compared to most of the country and the people are fairly well off in comparison to others. I envision Alto growing in population but not commercially, but the surrounding grand rapids area in constantly growing and changing for the better.
Review Bowne Township
In this area of town local businesses tend to be minute from D&W stores, to Subway to all the pizza parlors one could thing ok. BP gas stations to speedway stations and more. The only local business one could find around here would be ice cream parlors or school spirit shops or maybe even a local tavern. It is hard to get everything one needs in this area because of the high prices for food. One could say that many locals have gardens to sustain themselves.
The outdoors in this area are beautiful one can see a sunset from many different viewpoints. The little bit of hills makes riding bikes or cross country skiing extra thrilling. I enjoy seeing all of the green vegetation due to the increased amounts of rain we get in the spring. It is so easy to go camping in my area of town. There are three camp grounds neighboring my town and most everyone has a good size of property so one doesn't always need to go to a camp ground. Fishing is easy here there are so many lakes that you could spend a whole week fishing at completely different lakes. The rivers here are another great place to go fishing also commonly known for canoeing and kayaking down. I do enjoy the outdoors a great deal and have found enough things to keep me intrigued and adventuring.
