Sturgis is a small little town. It offers the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally yearly- which locals either like or dislike. In recent years there has been a push for expansion and bettering the community- more businesses, better housing opportunities, and parks.

I've lived in Sturgis all my life and I thoroughly enjoy living here. We get a bad rap for the Motorcycle Rally but the rest of the year Sturgis is a really nice and welcoming place. The people are really kind and the schools are really great, the teachers are especially kind.
In my opinion, I feel that my area is a great place to live. The Sturgis area hosts the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally every year during August. Some see it as a hindrance on our community, but I feel that it keeps our community on the map and up with the rest of the world; plus the Rally greatly benefits the city of Sturgis in terms of income. I really enjoy the healthy mix of culture and modern and agricultural influences this area holds. I intend on living in this area once I am done with my college education, and start my own veterinary practice within the community.
