Farmington Hills, Michigan
Located northwest of Detroit, this small town of just over 10,000 people is the best of both worlds. Close enough for commuting to the larger city for work or play, and small enough that a real hometown atmosphere is maintained. Your Farmington Hills apartment will provide an ease of living and the ability to take in not only small town life but the excitement of the big city.
This area was rich farmland created by one of the last glaciers to move across the northern United States. The first settlers literally walked from Siberia because of a once natural land bridge, and settled sharing the area with the Potawatomi Indian tribe.
In 1820, the United States annexed this land from the Indians and real development began. The town remained an agricultural community even as it became more and more a part of the greater Detroit area, and the main street area was the center of commerce. The area today shows architectural remains of that time period and charmingly combines both the old and the new.
The downtown area remains the heart of the town. The Civic Theatre presents all different sorts of films from children's to historic. The city is proud of its parks system from small vest pocket parks all around town to the larger Shiawassee, Drake, Masonic, Historic, and Floral Parks.
There's good shopping, little art galleries and just a calm and endearing way of life here. And, with the proximity to Detroit, it is possible to have the best of both big city and small town living. Once in your Farmington Hills apartment, you'll quickly sort out your favorite things to do.
Eat and Meet
You'll find a nice mix of places to dine in Farmington Hills. There are a few chain type restaurants and locally owned ones as well. The new Grand Tavern has great burgers as well as 15 television screens for sports watching. Alfoccino is very good Italian food owned by a couple of brothers. Dan's Giant Subs is the local favorite for fast sandwiches and meeting friends.
All Night Clubs
At night, venture out of your Farmington Hills apartment to explore the clubs. At Thirty 55, you can literally drink all night long because it stay open until dawn. Smaller venues, mostly pubs like Scores and the Farmington Hills Grill and Pub will have more intimate scenes and some will have music on weekends. For big night's out, just head into Detroit and some of the big city clubs.
