I like living in Swanton. It is close to Toledo where there is a lot to do, but is also more quiet than a busy city. I know a lot of people who live here and everyone is really friendly. It is a safe community and we live in a nice neighborhood. My family all lives within a half hour of me. I have an easy commute to college at BGSU and to my part time jobs.
I have lived in swanton my whole life. I love that it is a small town. We are far enough away from the city and the city life, but close enough for shopping, restaurants etc. our community is small, everyone knows everyone. We have a great school that was built in 2003, a couple family owned restaurants, bowling alley, and parks.
