Our region doesn’t have a big city. But our communities tend to have a little of everything and never a lot of chaos. You can live modern. Up here, there are a lot of people living life just the way they want to in a place they can’t replicate anywhere else. If you have to, you can reach Chicago, Detroit or Minneapolis in no more than a few hours by air. But you’ll always come back here to be yourself.
