Harbor Beach is a beautiful town on Lake Michigan. It is a close-knit community where everyone knows everyone. The public school has very good educational option, along with students and faculty that really care about you. The sports teams are also very successful. The town doesn't have much to do, but there are things to do within an hour drive.
I liked how small of a community it is. You know almost everybody in town and everybody works together. There is many activities and extra activities to participate in, especially during the summer, since there is a beach right in town.
