I love the small town feel of Gladstone. It's located right outside of Escanaba (a larger town with many shopping, dining, and event options) which is just close enough to make it so you're not too far away.

Very nice, small town however not a lot of fun activities to do. Community is general clean and very nice parks for children. Beautiful water front beaches.
It's a very small town. There aren't a lot of businesses in town, and it seems that new ones that pop up don't last very long. It's along Lake Michigan, so the scenery is beautiful. If you want to do something, most of your options are outdoor activities. Most of the people are very friendly.
