Thesee are a few characteristics of a small town,

  • Close-knit community
  • Less traffic
  • Fewer crowds
  • Less crime
  • Local business opportunities

Don't get me wrong, not all small towns in Michigan are great. I know this to be true because I have also posted about 10 of the worst small towns in Michigan. However, today is about the best small towns in the mitten state. Maybe you even live in one of them?

So how did these particular small towns make the list? According to Home Snacks, the most recent Census American Community Survey data was used with information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That sounds like legit scientific stuff to me.

Some of the things that were taken into account are as follows,

  • Population Density
  • Lowest Unemployment Rates
  • Housing costs
  • Adjusted Median Income
  • Highly Educated Adults
  • Insurance Rates
  • Commute Times

Blah, blah, blah. These small towns do indeed have it all, beautiful homes, great restaurants, unique local shops, and more.
