Reed City is conveniently located at the junction of U.S. 131 and highway 10. Reed City's historical claim to fame came from being the place where Michigan's main north/south and east/west railroads intersected, and Reed City was known as "Michigan's crossroads." Now, those railroads have been converted to scenic bicycle/hiking trails. Bicycling enthusiasts can ride from Reed City west to Ludington, east to Bay City, north to Cadillac or south to Battle Creek. Reed City hosts an annual Crossroads festival each summer and an Evergreen Festival in November.
Despite being the Osceola County seat, Reed City is the epitome of small-town life with a population of less than 3,000. Take a drive down West Upton Avenue and view the stately Victorian homes. Visit the Old Rugged Cross museum. Dine in charming little restaurants. Visit the covered bridge over the Hersey River and camp at one of Reed City's beautiful parks, serenaded in the evening by frog song.
