Transportation is great! There are bus routes that come from Marquette all throughout the day and the airport is about five miles away from the area.

Considering this is a smaller town, there are not as many selections when it comes to stores and other businesses.
There is a fitness center in the area but I will not say everyone in the area is well fit or healthy. I myself an healthy and try to exercise when I am able but that does not mean everyone else is the same way. Certain areas appear better than others in the community.
