Imagine the opportunity to enjoy breakfast overlooking the golf course in the morning and then sunning on the beach of one of the 55 lakes in the area. This region is an outdoor paradise with a plethora of activities to fill your time away from work. Camping, golfing and sailing in spring, sunbathing and fishing in summer, walking in golden plumed forests in the fall and skiing and hunting in winter. Get in your car and enjoy a drive through the scenic landscape with your family to Chicago or Detroit, both within two and a half hours.

Enjoy any of the 10 challenging golf courses all within 30 minutes of town, get anywhere in town in less than 15 minutes, leave your windows open at night and sleep easy knowing the low crime rate and go shopping knowing you'll bump into the smiling face of a friend wherever you go. The stunning colors you will experience when the seasons change will leave you breathless. All of this can be at your back door. Take advantage of a highly-respected and nationally awarded school system, a safe environment and affordable housing. You and your family will have access to metropolitan amenities including a vibrant, historic downtown and enjoy cultural evenings at the local Council of the Arts or Civic Center. If you enjoy college athletics or a university presence,  two of the most recognized programs in the country are just a short drive away.
