Delta County Reviews

I have always enjoyed living and growing up on the west side of Lansing. There are many things to do- great stores and restaurants. There are many schools to choose from. There are many parks to go to and recreational activities to participate in. It is also close to East Lansing and even closer to Downtown Lansing. While I can't say that I always fell safe at night, it is still definitely the place I call home. There are many great communities to get involved in.
