Good senior center.People are generally ok.

It's hard to tell. It seems family-oriented, which gives more room for the elderly. It does not have blatant youth attractions, but instead more omnibus attractions (largely a little theater). Transportation out of town is by car, but at least I-69 is on the edge of town and I-94 and the Indiana Toll Road and Ohio Turnpike are reasonably close.

Has a bus system. negative -- no transportation out of town except by car No available education beyond community college. Retail has largely been reduced to box stores As is to be expected in Michigan, winter snows are heavy.
