East of Flint lies the city of Davison. First settled as a stop on the line of the Chicago and Lake Huron Railroad, Davison soon saw mills, doctors, merchants and taverns pop up, and by 1916 the area was officially incorporated as a village.
Today, Davison is a bustling city with small-town charm. Notable restaurants in the area include Whitey’s Restaurant, that has been in the area since 1955 and is known for its famous fish and chips; Lucky’s Steak House famous for its delicious steak menu; and Bear Soup Deli, an eclectic café that focuses on homemade soups and salads.

It also hosts live music and open mic nights. If you are looking for a different feel, Madden’s Lounge is a local favorite with volleyball in the summer, pool tournaments in the winter and karaoke all year long.
Davison is a great place for play with its many parks including Lake Callis Recreation Complex and Dash-n-Splash Pad – a great place to take the kids in the summertime, and Davison Dog Park – the locals’ favorite place to take their fur-babies.
There are plenty of golf courses in the area including Copper Ridge Golf Course, Sugarbush Golf Club, Davison Country Club and Goldenrod Disc Golf course – for those who prefer discs to golf balls.
