"Podunk, One Horse Town..." Flat Rock by truesunn

Flat Rock Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 7 photos

I Had But One Dream...

And that was to get the heck out of Dodge so to speak. I have lived in the same 10 mile radius my entire life... I grew up in an upper middle class city called Trenton,about 10 miles away. We have plans to build a modular home on acreage in KY or TN in the next 2-3 years, tho!

WOW, We have a website!

Nature and Wildlife

My backyard backs up to Oakwood Metro Park, which houses a plethora of local wildlife! Many nights you can hear the frogs and crickets chirping, and if you're very quiet, you hear the occasional deer moving through the brush! We have a small pond, it's frequently visited by small frogs and dragonflies from the park. It's a very nice place to visit, there is fishing permitted in the park, but no hunting!

Besides Oakwood Metro Park (the entrance to the park is actually up the road in Huron Twp), we have Huroc Park, down on the Huron River. People fish the river year round, with a steelhead run in the spring and another in the fall. There is a very nice walking path in the park.

Weather and Gardening

The weather here stinks, particularly the winters. Whether it's snowing or not, you rarely see the sun from Mid Nov- Mid March. Temps generally fall below freezing daily in Dec and Jan. The winter months are in the mid-80's with fairly high humidity. They do say if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!

For you gardeners, we are in Zone 5. We don't put the goods out in the garden until atleast mid-May. You will have to start your seeds indoors or in a greenhouse.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Fishing the Huron River, Good Schools
  • Cons:Weather, increasingly heavier traffic
  • In a nutshell:The minute I can get out of here, I am!

    Very interesting pages on one of the places we haven't been yet in Michigan. Found you while looking for Flat Rock, North Carolia. Glad we stopped by.
