About our Mt. Pleasant Community

Situated at the center of Michigan’s lower peninsula, with Mt. Pleasant’s stable growth, the area maintains one of the state’s lowest unemployment rates. The beautiful campus of Central Michigan University is located in Mt. Pleasant, and recently added the new CMU College of Medicine. In addition to the strong university presence, the area’s public and private schools offer families great K-12 educational opportunities. When looking for housing, Mt. Pleasant offers a variety of options and is abundant with rental opportunities. The picturesque four-season climate of Michigan, combined with the abundance of lakes and the Chippewa River, makes Mt. Pleasant a perfect destination for outdoor activities. Camping, cross-country skiing, picnicking, swimming, fishing, and hiking are just a few of the possibilities; and the city provides a wide range of both youth and adult recreational programs. For the golf enthusiast, there are 13 golf courses within 30 minutes from town, and for those who enjoy live performances, the Soaring Eagle Waterpark, Hotel, and Casino complex brings top-notch performers to its stage. Mt. Pleasant offers amenities not often found in a community retaining a true “hometown” feel, making it a delightful place to be.

Mid-Michigan - A Great Place to Work and Live

McLaren Healthcare Corporation's headquarters are located in Grand Blanc, the cradle of the automotive industry that boasts one of the nation's highest concentrations of technical talent and manufacturing know-how.

The area is enriched by the presence of The University of Michigan-Flint, Kettering University, Mott Community College, Baker College, and The Detroit College of Business. A world-class cultural center with its highly acclaimed symphony, art institute, museum, planetarium, theater, recital hall, and library enjoys exceptional community support.

Michigan is a recreational haven famous for its pristine lakes and woodlands. Genesee, Lapeer, and Ingham counties are ideally located for boating, skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking, fishing, and golfing. An excellent interstate highway system intersects I-75 and I-69 near Flint, giving quick access to Detroit and Ann Arbor to the south, Lansing and Chicago to the west, or Port Huron and the Canadian border to the east.

For sightseeing and great weekend getaways, Michigan's "Up-North" officially starts not far from our doorway. What really makes our part of Michigan special is the people. Good, caring, hardworking people, who eagerly share their time and talent so their communities strong and united.

Mid-Michigan offers exceptional opportunities in almost every kind of sport, along with exceptional cultural events and educational institutions.
