If you love the comfort of small town living, but also like “big town” convenience, then Bad Axe is just the place for you!

With just under 4,000 residents, Bad Axe is a quaint community surrounded by farmland and woods. The area offers a nice variety of restaurants, retail stores, florists, photographers, parks, churches, hair salons, hotels, etc. … and more services and retailers are coming to the area all the time!

Bad Axe is located only 35 minutes from Lake Huron and offers many recreational activities for residents and visitors alike. Boating, fishing, hunting, camping and golfing are just a few of the fun things to do in Michigan’s Thumb. Please visit our Calendar page and Area Links to find more activities and events of interest.

If you’re looking to relocate or just need a quiet place to vacation, give us a try … who knows, maybe you’ll end up staying!
