Crime & Safety
- Public Schools

Really great parks, land preserves, pathways, schools, recreation programs and events. I feel very connected to my community!
I've lived in Okemos for over 10 years. I attended both middle school and high school and have been incredibly grateful for the educational experience. The neighborhoods are beautiful and the schools are top notch. MSU is essentially in our backyard and to be close to a University campus and around all of the college sports is amazing. The area is a wealthier area, so the cost of living is high but it is safe and I wouldn't think twice about walking around at night.
Okemos is a nice, older suburb of Lansing. Close to shopping, parks, and the expressway. Older retirees from the auto industry with a nice cross section of occasionally younger free-thinkers. Not very ethnically diverse...
