As a Real Estate Agent in Northern Michigan, I surely agree with Elizabeth in that Interlochen and the entire Traverse City area are both safe and excellent areas to live, raise kids and for the retired. Rarely do we here of reports of robberies or serious crime. And I've never heard of a home invasion happening "in these parts." In fact, I would tend to say that most people don't even lock their homes when they leave during the day or at night (I don't). If you have any other specifics questions, I'd be happy to help -231-570-1111. Thanks Mike
For some perspective you can find Traverse City's crime rates on this site: http://www.city-data.com/city/Traverse-City-Michigan.html . Interlochen's are likely even lower given its size. I highly recommend the area.
