First settled in 1852, Caro, Mich., became known by its name in February 1869. A town of approximately 4,200, this town caters to a slower pace of life. The town's lower cost of living of 70 percent (the national average is 100) makes Caro affordable for almost any income bracket. Just 28 miles from Saginaw, Mich., and 55 miles to Flint, opportunities for residents living in a Caro apartment for rent are endless.
The Cass River runs through Caro, and although it is a big draw for aesthetic reasons today, played a key role in Caro's development in its early stages and was the center for the town's growth and development. The city was also among the leaders of the state in growing and producing beans, sugar beets, wheat, corn and grains. The sugar factory built in 1899 brought many manufacturing jobs to Caro residents. Today, Caro Community Hospital provides health services to residents and jobs for professionals throughout the health field. The Caro Center and Tuscola County also employ residents in the area.
When you decide on a Caro rental, activities will never run dry and deciding on what fun things to do will be the hardest choice. Visit the Quanicassee State Wildlife Area or Saginaw Bay 35 miles north of Caro or head down to Detroit 78 miles away for a day of adventures in the big city. Crossing the border into Canada only an hour and a half away can make for an exciting trip for everyone. Residents can even decide to spend a day exploring Caro and living life in the slow lane.
