    There are a lot of small stores in my area. Sadly, they are not frequented. There are some clothing boutiques but they are too expensive for our town. There is a quaint bakery that makes the best cannolis and they are to die for. The only large store near us is Meijer really. There are a few fast food restaurants everywhere but quite a few small restaurants in town. They add character to the town, I wish they got more business.

    Crime is very little in this area, and the type of place where you'd feel safe leaving doors unlocked or windows open.

    I love the amount of parks in my area, especially the fact that there is a large dog park as well. There are plenty of trails for biking and running also. There is an abundance of lakes around me and it is amazing to go swim, fish, ski, etc. There are a few mountains near me wear one can ski, or snowboard. My friends are also always snowmobiling.
