      I love living in Owosso because of the four seasons as the summer is mild. The winter can be brutal, but I find beauty in the snow and all of the activities available in the winter. The cost of living and home prices are very low compared to other places.

      We have a lot of cute shops, coffee cafes, and lounges that make Owosso downtown area very unique. We don't have any malls in the area, but I usually do most of my shopping online. We have a few local grocery stores and different restaurants besides the normal commercial food places.

      We have several park options which make outdoor exercise fun, especially in the spring and summer. There are many hiking and bike trails. One of my favorite scenic parks is Harmon Patridge Park because it's near the nature preserve. For those crazy winter days, I usually stick to Planet Fitness or the YMCA. It's nice to have convenient options to work out.
