Close knit, quaint community; would like to see more diversity. The school system is very good with wonderful teachers. I liked the smaller school system because I felt like I could stand out and not just be another sheep in the herd. The proximity to Ann Arbor is great. No fast food here which could be seen as good or bad.

It's a safe, quiet community. Neighbors are great. The location is secluded and distant from major cities. Not much to do around here. Great location for families with kids.
I love this town. It has the charm of a small town and a sense of togetherness when it comes to town functions. It's far enough to not feel suffocated but it's also close enough to a larger city to not feel completely isolated. If there was one thing I could change it would be that the Dairy Queen in town would be opened YEAR ROUND!!!
