Live, Work and Thrive

From unleashing that child within you and hopping on a bike to cycle across the 26-mile stretch of Lakeland Trail State Park, to strapping on your cross-country ski’s, horseback riding, snowmobiling, mountain biking, swimming, boating and fishing all abound at the Pinckney Recreation Area. Pitch a tent and stay awhile or consider shopping and dining in the charming village of Pinckney.

These lovely small towns are surrounded by wooded areas and farmland, with several lakes interspersed. The natural beauty of the area has long made it a destination for people who love the outdoors, drawing visitors from all over the world. Hell, Michigan is one of the largest attractions in all of Michigan.

For the Hell of It

The tiny hamlet of Hell is a major draw for tour buses that travel to Livingston County from across the country. Visitors may be initially attracted to the unusual name of the destination, but the area's natural beauty and the friendliness of the locals is what they remember. It is also one of the most picturesque locations in southeastern Michigan. With rolling hills, streams, rivers and lakes perfect for canoeing and outdoor recreation. If horseback riding is your sport of choice, Hell Creek Ranch awaits you!

Shop, Dine, Play

Community leaders have organized a variety of festivals; the Hamburg Family Fun Fest, Pinckney's Art in the Park and Railroad Days in Hamburg. There are also festivals to celebrate the 4th of July, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween and more.

The area offers many entertainment and organized recreation opportunities. The Pinckney Players, Twins Masks and Pinckney Community High School offer numerous concerts and productions throughout the year. There are organized sports programs for both adults and youth as well.

There is always something to do in these charming, unspoiled small towns in America's heartland.
