Most likely, just like you, many of us at DBS grew up in Northern Michigan or were early transplants to the area. And we have to say that there’s a lot that makes this place such a unique and desirable area to live and work in, from the endless lakes and scenic landscapes to the friendly, warmhearted people that reside here.
While we could go on and on about what makes this such a special area of the state, here are just a few of the things we’ve learned from working and living in Northern Michigan.
1. “Community” is at the Heart of Northern Michigan
No matter where you go in Northern Michigan, it feels like one small, tight-knit community after another. This is not only showcased in the “small town” feel of each town but also through the personalities of those that live there. From pitching in to volunteer with local charities or school events, to celebrating through themed events like Alpenfest, the National Cherry Festival and Tip-Up Town, Northern Michiganders have a unique way of making everyone feel connected in such an widespread area.
