Nestled between small lakes and public recreation areas in west-central lower Michigan, the city of Stanton offers a small-town environment with agricultural roots, a low cost of living and high quality of life. Conveniently located within an hour’s drive of more populated areas (Grand Rapids, Lansing, Mt. Pleasant, Big Rapids) and two major airports (Lansing and Grand Rapids), the city also serves as a gateway to northern lower Michigan via M-66. The residents of Stanton appreciate the small town, rural feel of their community, knowing that the “bright lights” of urban areas are an hour’s drive away for entertainment, education, cultural and work opportunities.
