I would like to hear about the "quality of life" in Big Rapids? I know it is a college town so there are sports teams and theater but what else? I am looking for a Michigan College Town to make my home. Job is not important as I work overseas month on month off.... What are your thoughts?

We just moved about 10 minutes from Big Rapids, but so far it seems to be a nice town. People seem very nice and the crime rate is fairly low. There is a bowling alley and a golf course. Plenty of places to eat and a 24 hour Meijer and Walmart. Quite a few other stores as well. Good schools if you have or are planning to have kids, including a charter school. River runs through town, so water activities are abundant. There's also a big snowmobile trailhead, if you're into sleds. Hungerford Lake and national forest are about 10 minutes from Big Rapids, big area for horse riding. Hope this helps!
