The area is constantly growing because this is an area that everyone wants to live in right now. People are always asking for leads on places to purchase. I am very happy to have found a home here and see myself retiring in the area. There is constant improvement being done such as adding green spaces, dog parks and walking/bike trails. I think there are many more great things in store for the area. The schools are great and my kids love their teachers. There is a sense of community and many examples of people pitching in to help others or make the area even better.

Caledonia is a wonderful place for children to grow up! The atmosphere in Caledonia is AMAZING! I would personally recommend people to come to visit the Caledonia area to either sightsee or to just have a place where its peaceful and quiet!
I live just right outside of Caledonia Township. The area is very nice and quiet at night. The local restaurants have very good food and excellent service. There are a lot of kid friendly activities to do all around town especially in summer time.
