Gladwin is a cute little town. It is a great place to settle down and relax away from the hustle and bustle of suburban areas. My one complaint is that it does come off as a clique with the townspeople, as everyone is related to someone

I loved Gladwin for having the small town feel, while still having many things that an averaged sized town would have. Commute time is a breeze, only taking 20 minutes to walk from one side of town to the other.

The only thing I would change? Would be more effort to make our town grow. Yeah, a small town is nice, but it wouldn't hurt to expand a bit.
The small shops give Gladwin a old time feeling, but the justice system in Gladwin is very biased! And after 10pm everything closes pretty much except mcdonalds
