Small town. It's a quiet town that is safe and a good area to raise a family. There is no nightlife other than one tiny bar, very few restaurants, and two gas stations in the entire town. On the plus side, Okemos and East Lansing are a short drive away which gives a person access to anything

The surrounding schools are okay. Nothin spectacular but better than schools in neighboring areas. Overall a safe town that hasn't had any murders/crime in recent memory
I like living in Holt because I had found people to be nice and the community is great. I like living close to the Holt Delhi library because it makes it easy to get resources. I like being able to go there if I need to find a book or if I need to use their computers or if I simply just need a quiet place to do my homework and study for a quiz or test. I like the community getting together and forming a parade and coming to it and seeing all the great things about Holt.
