I just wanted to know what small Michigan cities are good places to live. By small I mean around 5k-20k. So name some cities and what makes them so great!

Marshall, St. Joseph, Lapeer, St. John's, Mason, Alma, Big Rapids, Brighton and Zeeland, among others are some to check out. I personally like St. Joseph's location on Lake Michigan with the beach right there and the pretty close proximity to Chicago.

Saugatuck, Douglas, Stockbrdge, and Colon don't have anywhere near 5000 people. None of them even have a population of 1300.

Little smaller than you asked, but I really enjoy Clarkston. Nice downtown, beautiful to walk around.

Fenton is a nice gem too.

Love the UP, Marquette, Negaunee, Escanaba, Iron Mountain & St. Iggy.
