While I wasn't born in Flint, I have spent about 25 years of my life here. The longer I live here the more I love the history of the city. I just wish I was a little bit older and lived here longer for the music scene alone. Flint was a stop on many major tours back in the day from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra, 2Pac, and more. The old IMA and the Capitol Theatre brought big names to the Flint stages. Even today, The Machine Shop has become a major concert venue in the world of music.

The food is another amazing thing about Flint. Sure the battle between Flint-style and Detroit-style coneys will never have a winner, but the fact that we have such a strong contender in the fight is awesome.
