Tidbits of Interest
Reminiscent of a New England postcard image, the images and architecture prevalent throughout Plymouth are those of a lovely, small town. One-of-a-kind shops ranging from country crafts to contemporary harmonize with a hotel, theater, and fine restaurants—all near the lush green space of a Main Street park. Many fine older homes filled with distinction and character are available, many of which are beautifully renovated. Newer homes are also springing up throughout the township, spurred by an abundance of available land for luxury estates with generous acreage. Plymouth is an active town with a wide range of programs and events made possible by the Community Arts Council. Home to the Compuware Sports Arena where the Ontario Hockey League Plymouth Whalers play, the township has the lowest tax rate in Wayne County. Fox Hills County Club in Plymouth is another attraction, offering first-rate golfing to the public. Manufacturing and distributing plants of well-known companies are beginning to dot the Plymouth area, drawn by an ideal location to major markets. The township is less than a half hour to Metro Airport and an easy commute to Detroit as well as to Ann Arbor. In addition to neighborhood and state parkland, Hines Parkway between Plymouth and Northville passes by a small lake, scenic woodlands, and lush open spaces for relaxation and recreation.
