Hartland is a community filled with amazing people and a very close community bond. There are many things to do including going to an assortment of restaurants and different activities. Community-wide activities are almost never-ending things like movie nights, breakfasts, and other activities that are almost always going on. It is also a very quiet and safe place to raise and provide for a family. If you are looking to have a vibrant party scene then Hartland is not for you because it comes with slim choices in night clubs and other activities along those lines. If you are looking for a nice, safe, and calm place to have fun or raise a family then Hartland is the community for you!

Hartland is a friendly and excellent community to live in. Although it is small, there are many things that families can do! In Hartland, residents can enjoy home cooked meals, along with having the ability to shop at family-owned boutiques. Hartland also throw many bashes ranging from street dances, to parades, and has many fun activities during holidays.
The school districts in the area are phenomenal, which is one of my biggest concerns as a single mother of 2. Being in the "lake country" area where the majority of residents are in the middle to high income class can be intimidating at times, but overall we enjoy living here. The one thing I would love to see a change in is the snooty attitude of residents in Hartland!
