Midland is a small niche community. With the ups and downs of DOW, Midland is having a hard time growing. I enjoyed living in Midland for the small town feel and close proximity to larger cities. Great summer weather, harsh winters.
I have loved growing up in Midland, and there are so many adventures and memories from my childhood that are unique to a town like Midland. I love going to Loons games in the summer time or riding bikes around the Tridge. There was a time when my friends and I even Kayaked through some of the flooded areas during the spring time (don't worry, that doesn't happen often). The schools I studied more than prepared me not only for college, but now graduate school. Midland is filled with resources and opportunities available not only for entertainment, but for those beginning their careers, students, those looking to start new businesses, or simply find a friendly, welcoming city to be a part of. Additionally, it is close to many great places, and being a part of the Tri-Cities, other opportunities are only a short drive away, making Midland seem to be the perfect spot to be.
