North Branch Reviews

North Branch, Michigan is a small town with an authentic farm town feel. There are enough small local businesses to provide the locals with needed services, but you do need to travel about 20 miles to get to big-box stores like Walmart. Some advantages are the clean air, friendly people, and locally available fresh farm produce. There isn't a stop light in town! And, at certain times of the year you may get stuck behind a tractor on the road hauling hay, corn or other crops. But this just adds to the local charm.

North Branch, Michigan is a small town. When people say they know everyone and everything they are not kidding. North Branch is a spectacular place to raise your kids, although there is not very many activities to partake in. Very many small businesses in North Branch, so you always support the small businesses which is great. Great education, even if everyone in the area jokes about their education.
