Upscale. Cultured. Fun.

Here, we love the finer things in life. The cafe scene. A good meal. The great outdoors. And for dessert, some shopping or a show with a cherry on top. The suburbs of Oakland are full of tree-lined streets, but don’t let our quiet neighborhoods fool you. We know how to have a good time. From our happenin’ downtowns (think Ferndale, Royal Oak and Birmingham) to the Detroit Zoo, and a diverse array of restaurants, theaters, golf courses, parks and concert venues in between, you’ll find plenty of fun and friends in this neck of the woods.
