I am feeling a bit less stressed this days, maybe it is because spring is here, and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the pandemic.  It does help I am feeling good that I am fully vaccinated. I also love that concerts and fests are making their way back to Michigan in 2021.  Last week I wrote about  Gizzard Fest coming back after 4 years. Plus concerts like Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton, and Miranda Lambert are coming to the Mitten.  Now we have another one to look forward too.

I noticed on Fox47news.com that the Mason Spring Fling is coming back after 4 years. The Mason Area Chamber of Commerce's Spring Fling is coming back this Sunday. Get ready for some spring fun at the Ingham County Fairgrounds. It will not be  Courthouse Square this year. Michigan Barnwood and Salvage will cohost.

We've struggled through the coronavirus, of course, like everybody. But, we're kind of getting back out there as things are opening up," said Executive Director of Mason Area Chamber of Commerce Sarah Russell. "It's really important for these vendors. I mean there are 140 small businesses that benefit from a good amount of traffic, and we generally have quite a few people come to town.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
