For that relaxing get-away head to Branch County, Michigan also known as Coldwater Country. We are thrilled about the new exciting events scheduled this year. Coldwater Country is located 40 minutes south of Lansing at the intersection of I-69 and U.S. 12 Heritage Route. It is a great place to spend time, offering a bit of country, near the city. The area is rich in historic structures with many beautiful Victorian, Italianate, Greek and Gothic Revival homes and businesses.  Check out our Community Calendar for a full list of fun and exciting events happening in Branch County.
