The people are so friendly, and everyone knows your name. But the culture is very closed off. We're also very set in our ways. Most people are a little close-minded when it comes to bringing in new business. The community hosts lots of events from farmers markets to parades and other festivities that are fun for the whole family.

Grass Lake is a nice small town with a lot of open space. There is not much to do for adults but mostly the kids could use more to do. The only thing I would change would be for the children to have a fun safe place to play.
There are great schools and great people there.
