I used to live in big cities and when I moved to Berrien Springs-MI in 2012, I was bored. I didn't know people, there's not many stores, at night everywhere is dark and quiet, so I named the place Bored Springs!!! But after a year I started to feel comfortable, know people and talk to people as my own family!!! I thought this city is so different, people care about each other, they know me and my family and we enjoy the same lifestyle!!! We are blessed because there is a university offering so many things to do!!! We have education, sports, music, spiritual support, a very intense social life and everything is available in the same place without traffic, violence, noise and pollution!!! I have to say I'm passionate about this piece of heaven!!! Now, for me Berrien Springs is very calm, peaceful and a friendly place to live and raise kids!!! The best place ever!!!

Berrien Springs is a great, small town. The town is very diverse and is really into healthy living. There are vegetarian shops as well as stores that sell meat. The school system is pretty good too; there are opportunities for students to advance. The town is located by the highway so commute times are lower than other towns.
