U.P. towns listed for charm, beauty

A recent listing claims to have found the most charming small towns in Michigan. Some of these picks seem a little random.. Battle Creek, really? But we won't argue over Crystal Falls and Ishpeming, both sleepy gems of the U.P.
 
Excerpt: There’s something special about a small town, that you just can’t find in the big city. Maybe it’s the way everyone seems to know you (that can be a good AND bad thing, but that’s another story). Maybe it’s the sense of pride that comes from making a difference in a tight-knit community. Or perhaps it’s the friendly, independent shops where you’d rather patronize because you know the families that run them. Here are some of those charming, beautiful towns across Michigan that you should be proud to call home.
