Fremont, located in Michigan, is one of the most cozy towns anyone could live in. It's pretty compact, but the people who live within it have giant hearts. The town and it's people are always friendly and smiling. The people of Fremont are often seen taking walks with their fuzzy, loyal companions, going for runs, and organizing events for the community. Every year Fremont hosts the Gerber Baby food Festival, where people come from all over to visit. The local gym often hosts 5K's for those who are involved with keeping their bodies happy and healthy. If there was one thing that I could change it would be the smell! Fremont is home to some of the United States best farmers, and with farmers comes cows, who don't have the best scent. The farmers here often fertilize their crops with manure as well. Pee yew! With Fremont being a smelly town some times, it is also one of the best that I have lived in. I encourage anyone looking for a cozy small town to check out Fremont, Michigan.

I like the small-town feel, yet the opportunities for shopping--such as Walmart and Glick's--and delicious eateries with home cooked meals are numerous. There are unique touristy shops, as well as fast-food restaurants. Fremont is also home to the FANTASTIC Spanky's Pizza. I sometimes just go and have a basket of the wonderful parmesan crusted breadstix. IF you are looking for pizza though, the chicken ranchero is the most delicious!
Even though it's a small town it's very nice. The town has many local events that leave a very good impression on the townspeople and the surrounding towns nearby. Fremont is a quiet little town that is perfect for staring a family or a growing one.
