Interaction with GuestsThat's our reason for offering room(s) on AirBnB - meeting new people! We've lived here 32 years but have also traveled extensively in Europe and the U.S. - Germany, Italy, England, Hawaii, New Mexico, New York, Florida... The NeighborhoodLarge shade trees, sidewalks, very much a Midwestern town with homes in the homestead, bungalow, Cape Cod, Craftsman, farmhouse, cottage and a smattering of Victorians, Stick, Gothic and other styles. But Saginaw is a rust belt city and has seen a drop in population of 50% since 1979, when the auto industry was at its peak, so you will also see empty or unmown lots, brownfields, etc. - and some success stories like the Bancroft Hotel downtown (made into modern apartments for our huge medical professional population), condos going up on the river, etc.
Ojibway Island is in the middle of the city and less than a mile away from our home. We have often have guest passes to the Saginaw YMCA, which is 10 minutes from us and has a huge selection of machines, weights, 2 pools, classes and more. Getting AroundOur home is two blocks from Saginaw STARS bus route 11, (URL HIDDEN) but like most midwest cities, a car is the way to go. Few and limited bicycle lanes, though recreational bicycling is wonderful on the multi-county Saginaw and Pere Marquette Rail Trails.
There are several car rental agencies within 2 miles of our home - Enterprise and Hertz and National - and more at the airport 20 minutes away. But closest is Redmond Automotive, which is 1.5 miles away and rents sedans and up to 15 passenger vans. (URL HIDDEN)
