    East Grand Rapids

    • Suburb of Grand Rapids, MI
    • 15 reviews
    Niche User:Growing up in the neighboring city of East Grand Rapids, there is a very tight-knit sense of community. East is a small city of about 10,000, compared to Grand Rapids' nearly 200,000. Families tend to stay in East for a very long time. With only one middle school and one high school with small class sizes, students and families know one another and the sense of community is very strong. It is extremely pet and family friendly. The community is extremely engaged in its events, such as high school sports, art festivals, and food festivals.

    Hastings

    • Town in Michigan
    • 26 reviews
    Niche User:I think the crime rate in Hastings is pretty low. I never hear about many crimes that happen. The police officers are well-trained and reliable. I mean, there is obviously some crime around here, but it's not the kind of crime where people get hurt for the most part. A lot of the crimes are drug busts or rowdy drunk people. The only crime I'm really worried about is domestic violence, but that's a big deal everywhere, not just in Hastings.

    Richfield Township

    • Town in Michigan
    • 8 reviews
    Niche User:It is a good place to live, pretty quiet area with several recreational parks to enjoy the outdoors. If you're not someone who likes to live in the city, Davison is the perfect spot. It is quiet with plenty of dining options and is not far from the main expressways to visit Flint, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Saginaw and Lansing.

    South Lyon

    • Suburb of Detroit, MI
    • 20 reviews
    Niche User:There is little to no crime in this area. If there is a type of crime it is very small and caught in the right time. The police do their job well and are always out looking to see what is going on in our town and making sure everything is safe. People in the neighborhoods are always making sure the neighborhoods are safe too by having a lookout and making sure everyone knows what to do in midst of a crime

    Clawson

    • Suburb of Detroit, MI
    • 16 reviews
    Niche User:I love Clawson. Whenever I go out into the area I feel nothing but welcomed. I come from a small town and everyone knows everyone. It has its negatives don't get me wrong, but it has so many more positives to it. The sense of community is so strong compared to other areas. There is such a willingness to help one another. If I had the choice I would live here and choose to raise my family here as well. I cant imagine walking into a community center and not knowing anyone inside like other communities just thinking that's the norm. I see the future for Clawson very bright. I see it growing as a community, and a place where not only locals are wanting to visit.

    Niche User:Lots of police, very little crime. Pot is the only semi-prevalent drug and most instances involving police are speeding or elderly people falling in their houses.
