Support for healthy living in the community with bike trails and parks! Farmers Market on Sundays during the summertime with fresh produce, fitness centers for working out when outdoor conditions are not ideal. Close to a running store and bike shop. Several chain options available for dining in town as well as some nice local restaurants. Quick drive to shopping centers, good-quality Kroger in town for grocery shopping. Convenient commute as the town is right at the merge point of US-23 and I-75. More expensive to live here than other places I've lived in, but safer community and better amenities.

Not as much to do in the area necessarily, but is a very safe community. A lot of nice eateries in the area and schools going from Elementary schools up to high school are all within 30 minutes of each other. Easy freeway access from all parts of Grand Blanc, no more than 20 minutes away from the major expressways. A lot of tourists attractions as well as family attractions within an hour and half of Grand Blanc as well. All in all its a great community!
I love Grand Blanc and my small city neighborhood. We have sidewalks and a growing group of businesses. I enjoy walking to my favorite ice cream shop downtown or the post office. It's such a safe place to live!

I would like to see a better developed plan for those businesses and the way the downtown is shaped by them. The leadership seems unfocused, evidenced by the way businesses are treated and which is encouraged to open here. We have too many empty buildings which need to be marketed to niche companies who can fit the varied residents of our small city.
