Caledonia is such a great place to live. We have some of the best schools in the country! We are only 45minutes to 1 hour away from the lakeshore to make for a perfect day trip in the summer! Winters are cold, but great skiing and snowboarding is nearby!

Caledonia is a close-knit and friendly community with a very good support system in high times and in low. Neighbors welcome you into their homes with open arms and make you feel like you belong within their community. Our schooling system is very strong with high academic standards in order to provide and receive the best education around.

Some things that could be different would be the opportunity to have a more interactive community with chances to have more gatherings outside of school- functioned events (Relay for Life etc.). We also could more businesses to make our town more lively. Caledonia has been around for a long time and making it more modern could help bring in visitors or even more neighbors.
Caledonia is family oriented town with close knit friends. The community is involved in school events and education is an encouraged priority for children. Caledonia is centrally located between main attractions, but is not to far from city life. This suburban town is known for its country atmosphere that ensures privacy and safety for all family.
