Although there's not much to do around Swartz Creek, many people are happy where they live and crime is minimal because of the lack of city. There is no defined downtown, but one could consider the Hank and Don's bar to be it. Swartz Creek is a wonderful place to live if you're ready to retire, but younger people may be better suited to visiting Lansing, forty miles west.
I-69 goes right through Swartz Creek.
Although Swartz Creek may not be very big, you will still need a car or a good bike to get around as there is no public transportation.
