Its a small town, so people know people. Most are friendly. There are, however, a lot of drug problems like many towns. The public Schools are horrible, and most of the restaurants have bad service. The city is expanding, so it's a little nicer. I think the City should spend the money we pay in more wisely and not on moving a train station 3 blocks away for just under a Million.
Sturgis is a rural town and therefore has a small town feel but it still is very close to big cities making it a good in-between place to live. While there are all of the essential amenities, there has lately been some very welcomed improvements in the past few years with grocery stores and restaurants Such as Wings Etc and Miejers. Sturgis is a safe place to live and is a great place to raise a family in.
