If you are getting ready to relocate to Michigan, do you know where to go? Perhaps you already live in the state and want a new start with the family. It doesn’t matter what your situation is, but if you are moving within or to Michigan, you should really take a look at Spring Arbor.
Spring Arbor is a pretty small town – just take a look at the population coming in at just 2,332! Believe it or not, Spring Arbor is actually a tiny college town, located smack dab in the middle of Michigan farmland. The town is the home of Spring Arbor University’s main campus, which is a liberal arts college with over 2,000 students. So, just like the town, the college is relatively small as well.
Any family looking for a laid-back ‘college town’ feel will definitely get that when they move to Spring Arbor. Spring Arbor maintains a rural ambience and has plenty of parks for the kids to play in. In fact, when you visit the area to look for homes, check out Lime Lake – residents swim, fish, and picnic there in the summer. It’s a main draw. Oh, and the median family income is about $70,000, so you’ll find homes priced accordingly.
As Spring Arbor is essentially a small college town, the population does ebb and flow with the coming and going of school semesters as students move in and out. In the summer, the town is a sleepy little place that’s great for raising a family. In the school season, it’s more bustling, but still very relaxed.
If Spring Arbor isn’t for you, let us suggest Marysville. Let us know what you think!
