Otsego is a very small town with great neighbors and schools. It does not have a post office, police station or it's own zip code, but it is very friendly and a growing community

It is a growing town with a small-town vibe. It is known for the farms and housing, that takes up most of the area. However, there is a fairly new target and a Holiday Inn with a nice water park.
Otsego is a great place to live, peaceful with friendly neighbour's and parks. It's a great place for young families and it's quiet and offers lots of places to eat and shop.
Downside is Otsego does need more entertainment areas though but this should happen as the community continues to grow and changet.
Also it lacks diversity which is important in opening up the world for the kids.
