Community and the Arts in Lapeer
Around 10,000 people call Lapeer, Michigan home. This town is a suburb of Flint but is located quite a distance away, making it the perfect place for apartment renters looking for small-town life in a friendly, artistic community. Renters won't need to head out of town for great food or entertainment, either. Lapeer has made the arts a priority and there are a few casual theater troops that liven up the stage of the old PIX theater. There are also a variety of different art shows held throughout the year at Gallery 194. The downtown area is home to unique shops and restaurants that keep the people of Lapeer well-fed and their apartments well-furnished. Newcomers to town should be sure to connect with their neighbors at community events, many of which are hosted by either the gallery or the theater.
Catching a Few Pics at the PIX
Entertainment has always been one of the priorities of Lapeer and the town has been a supporter of film for nearly a hundred years. The first movie theater in town was built by George Smith in 1914 and though it wasn't much, it provided inexpensive (at the time tickets cost between five and ten cents) entertainment. The theater was so popular and successful that Smith opened up a larger theater, the Lyric Theater in 1921. Live music performed by Smith's wife accompanied the silent films of the 20s and 30s until movies started coming standard with their own soundtrack. In order to accommodate these new films, Smith constructed yet another theatre (some may call it madness but oh, the fabulous movies),the PIX, in 1941. Apartment renters in Lapeer can still pay the PIX a visit, catching an old movie or a new one in this historic building. Local groups can also rent the theater out for performances, seminars or private events. Though the days of 5 cent movies are over and done with, ticket prices at the PIX are reminiscent of simpler times, and at $5 a ticket, a night out at the PIX won't put you in the poorhouse.
Calling All Artists
It's not just film buffs that will love living in Lapeer. This small town is a supporter of all arts and renters will be able to view art exhibits and take art and music classes at Gallery 194. Galleries 1-193 have mysteriously vanished from the town record, but 194, the one the people of Lapeer know and love today, has a lot going all year round. Local artists can submit their works for display (and sale) at the gallery and appreciators of fine arts can pick up a new decoration for the apartment that will wow friends and family who come to visit.
Back to Nature
Most of the countryside around Lapeer consists of farmland. Though most of the forests have been cleared and the natural areas transformed into civilization, there are still ways for residents of Lapeer to get away from it all and commune with nature. There are a couple of small parks in town, perfect for picnicking or playing a game of Frisbee with a friend or even a friendly dog. Just outside of town, a couple of small lakes give residents a place to fish or boat (or swim if the weather's not too cold). South of Lapeer, a number of different state recreation areas dot the outskirts of the Detroit metropolitan area. These woodlands and forests give residents of Lapeer a great place to camp, hike or spot some wildlife.
Small Town Charm
Lapeer is a relatively small town and set away from Michigan's large, busy cities. It may be a long drive to get into the big city, but apartment renters in Lapeer will rarely need to stray from their small, fun-loving town. The downtown area is home to small, friendly and often family-owned restaurants that serve up great food and good company. Many of the shops in town are also small and owned by the townspeople, though there are also a few large chains that make sure the people of Lapeer can get anything they need.
