I lived in Newaygo for many years and it is a great place for a family. The seasons and the outdoor activities are great. I enjoy the summer and fall weather. I would recommend this town to anyone that loves the four seasons!
I have lived in Newaygo County for seventeen years and am absolutely amazed with how everyone is here for each other. They are all so friendly and very outgoing. The County shows great citizenship and sportsmanship in sports is a big thing to us in Newaygo County. I personally would like to see more restaurants come into the county and we only have few. I feel that is will make a great way for people to get to know each other more and to expand this amazing county.
