Life in the big city can be taxing. The traffic, the sprawl, and – dare we say – the rude people to contend with. Sometimes you just want to slow down the pace a bit and enjoy the scenery and small town charm that make life worthwhile.
Here, we’ve identified (with a little help from our readers) some small towns that achieve just that. Beautiful surroundings, friendly folks, and reminders of a simpler time here in Michigan.
