"Mio – A City in a Forest"

The few times I’ve been to Mio, I have found it hard to leave. In fact, I would definitely consider living there, but even for me, it is a little too secluded. The idea of the closest Whole Foods and a hospital being a half hour away stresses me a little.

Mio is within Huron National Forest, so for an outdoor enthusiast like me, this place is paradise. Not only is there an endless supply of trails and wildlife, there are places to rent canoes, kayaks, rafts and tubes to enjoy the AuSable River. There is cross-country skiing, horseback riding and even golfing too!

If you are looking for beautiful wood furniture, handmade by the Amish, there are specialty shops out there. A friend of mine bought a one-of-a-kind, stunning bed that is just breathtaking. If you live in Mio, I suggest getting a snowmobile; everyone has one and you likely will need it to get to the bar or store if the roads aren’t plowed right away.

I know that there are public schools in Mio, but I don’t know much about them. Most homes are nestled in their own private woods so plan on driving your children to play dates; there will be no walking next door to hang out with friends.
  • Surrounded by beautiful scenery
  • Quite and safe
  • Endless activies outdoors
  • Far away from amenities
