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.

Travel Tip

"A great way to try out Detroit restaurants is to log onto Groupon ...  It helped us breakout of our normal routine, visit more and it has spiced things up a bit for my traveling girlfriends group."
