Lapeer county will always be home, no matter the distance I will travel. Growing up everyone knew each other and we all were like one big family. Occasionally, there is an event that brings dreadful news, but it only makes us stronger when we over come the feelings as a whole. Nothing needs to change here; Lapeer County is home.
Lapeer is a diverse and welcoming town in Michigan. It has a great selection of restaurants, a fantastic school system, and many things to do around town. I highly recommend visiting!
