What can I say? I wouldn't recommend Cadillac, Michigan to my worst enemy as a place to live or even to visit briefly. After living in Cadillac for two years I had to get out while I still could. The amount of crime in Cadillac is a living nightmare. You are literally taking your life in your hands every time you step out your front door. The entire place was bad, but unfortunately, the neighborhood I live in was one of the worst areas for a crime violent crime overall. What would I say was the best area in Cadillac? Any road that led out of the place! It's sad when there is literally nothing redeeming about a town, but that is the situation in Cadillac.
While I was stuck there I managed to find a few things to do for fun and entertainment. There is Adventure Island Family Fun Park, Interlochen State Park, Painting and Vine where you can create artwork while enjoying a glass of wine, the Pines Sports Bar & Bowling Center, and Hot Traxx DJs for some karaoke. If you can bypass Cadillac, Michigan in your travels, I strongly advise you to do so.
