Growing up in Pierson is probably my favorite thing about myself. It may be a small town, but I find that to be the best thing about it. You can go out to the store or a restaurant and you'll always see someone you know. Pierson has a lot of fun summer activities to do, from finding a local lake to swim in, to driving down backgrounds blaring music with your friends, to stopping and the ice cream shop. The high school's population is pretty small as well, but I personally loved this because I could get to know each and every one of my fellow students on a personal level. It's always nice to go out and to see a student, or a student's relative and just chat. Pierson is a great place to grow up and live, the scenery is beautiful. The only thing I would change about Pierson is how it is slowly becoming a summer time hangout space. I wish Pierson's summer folk would come around more than just in the summer to see and experience it's true beauty and what it truly has to offer.

Quite, small town just north of Grand Rapids. Very nice community and very friendly people. From the post office to the Torca gas station that has some of the best jerky I have ever had. Just a short drive south is Grand Rapids home of grand valley state university and just a short drive north in Big Rapids ia Feris state university.
