I love my school district within Allegan County, but I have heard many negatives about it. Allegan County is one of the biggest counties for drugs (especially meth) in Michigan. Once I graduate from college and buy a house, I am moving out of the county into a nicer one. I do not want my future children referred to living in the "meth county".

It is a nice community, mostly clean, reasonable coast of living. The parks are really nice. Public service seems responsive. The housing market is always changing.
I moved here in May of 2017. I absolutely love it here! Small town feel and people genuinely care about each other and are willing to lend a helping hand at a moments notice. Lots of wildlife and a slower pace of life...exactly what I was both need g and wanting.
