Welcome to DeWitt

With a growing downtown and peaceful rural land, DeWitt has that quintessential small-town community feel just north of Lansing. Surround yourself with vintage charm at the nationally acclaimed Sweetie-licious bakery, or spend the evening at favorite restaurants like Looking Glass Brewing Co. and Bridge Street Social downtown. Regular community events bring people together, such as Looking Glass Brewing Co.'s StreetFest, the Christmas Lights Parade and Market, and – of course – the historic DeWitt Ox Roast. 

Across the city, vintage buildings and homes provide a glimpse into the city's past, as DeWitt was formerly a prominent stop on Michigan railways. To the south, Padgett Park offers a sprawling dog park and miles of walking trails in a dense forest atmosphere. Whether it's summer or winter, you can find families playing at parks or friends meeting up downtown on any given day in DeWitt.

A close-knit community that's always expanding.

Historic farm homes, large subdivisions and growing luxury apartments make DeWitt a place for everyone to find a close community. With a central school district and numerous community activities, DeWitt is one of those cities where you'll always run into someone you know at the grocery store.
