How is life in Michigan? Where should I be looking to live? I may have an opportunity to move out there for work, so I'm trying to get a feel for it. I'd be covering a territory of Michigan and Northern Ohio, so I have free reign to live anywhere in the area. I have a young family, so safety is top priority, but we'd also like to be close enough to a some action (restaurants, bars etc.). I'm coming from Northern NJ and know nothing about Michigan. All I read is it's very cold and tons of construction. Ann Arbour seems like a cool place, but I don't know for sure. Would love to hear some feedback from people that live there.
