It's a small town but a comfortable one, a lot of people. Just not very diverse, if you're looking for a quiet place to live this is it.

Stanton is a small town in Montcalm County Michigan. It is a vibrant town in a very rural county. There are many outdoor activities that can be done here such as biking on the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail and Kayaking or Canoeing on the Flat River.
The overall experience of this area is very homelike. The people are generally kind and everyone knows anyone. I would not choose to live here again; however, I would suggest a visit for a friend. The gas prices are fairly low, and that is one of the things that set this town aside from anywhere else. Compares to everywhere else in the country this is a very small town, but it is full of opportunity. I can see many more stores and restaurants opening up which will lower the unemployment rate in this area.
