Setting & Lifestyle

The overall crime rate in Sturgis is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Sturgis has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Sturgis has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Sturgis than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Sturgis may be for you.

Sturgis is a very car-oriented city. 0.97% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking.
