Allegan Township in Allegan County

View on Map

The word Allegan means “ Lake of the Algonquins”. When Elisha Ely arrived on the scene in 1833, he sent word to his hometown of Rochester, New York. He said, “send settlers”. Ely realized, that with the river providing water power, and the Indian trails making the spot accessible, and the open corridor to Lake Michigan, this was an ideal location for a town. In the 1980s, the citizens of Allegan began a movement to preserve historic sites in their city. This was sparked by the restoration of the Second Street Bridge—a one-lane bridge built in 1886. Anyone visiting the area will want to make this one of their destinations.

Located between Interstate 75 and Highway 10 is the City of Lake Angelus. Named for the body of water it surrounds, Lake Angelus has the distinction of being Michigan’s smallest city. Strictly residential in nature, the community began as an incorporated village in 1930 and was incorporated as a city in 1984. Like many of the lake communities, open land and vacant property is scarce in Lake Angelus— a fact that will place physical limitations on any future growth and expansion. Developers may consider this lamentable, but newcomers who are attracted to Lake Angelus for its blend of privacy, intimacy, tranquility, and scenic beauty will view this as a major benefit. With so few residents, Lake Angelus is a close-knit community characterized by an enclave of upscale, single-family homes. Area youth attend school in Pontiac or Waterford, but the city does offer a unique educational center in the form of the McMath-Hubert Observatory. The observatory offers public viewing of spectacular celestial events as well as youth programs. Many consider it as one of Oakland County’s best-kept secrets. Lake Angeles residents have the advantage of highway links that offer an easy commute to many of the county’s highly developed suburbs like Farmington Hills. Community colleges, university extension campuses, large shopping malls, and cultural attractions are all available a short distance from home.

Mackinac Island in Mackinac County

View on Map

Perhaps the most noticeable first impression visitors get of Mackinac Island is the absence of automobiles! Visitors and residents travel by foot, bicycle or horse drawn carriage on Mackinaw Island. This tempo is more comparable to the 19th century. Tour carriages and taxis will take you wherever you want to go and it's not long before you adjust to a slower pace most visitors have never known.

Eleven thousand years ago in prehistoric times, not long after the retreat of the last glacier, aboriginal natives stood on the mainland shore, looked out over the Straits between two newly formed great lakes and saw an island with unusually high bluffs - Mackinaw Island. They thought it resembled a large reptile and called it mish-la-mack-in-naw or big turtle. When they explored it, they marveled at its unusual natural limestone formations and buried their dead in the Island's caves.

It was the Victorians who made Mackinac Island one of the nation's most favored summer resorts. In the post-Civil War industrial age and before automobiles, vacationers traveled by large lake excursion boats from Buffalo, Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit to the cooler climes of Mackinac Island.

Big Rapids in Mecosta County

View on Map

Just as the name suggests, the most valuable natural resource of Big Rapids, Michigan is the water. Big Rapids may be a college town, home to Ferris State University, but it first provided a good economy for the settlers by way of the lumber industry. Potawatomi Chief Mecosta was an early traveler along the local waterways, and Mecosta County was eventually named for him. The Mecosta County Historical Museum provides much more items of interest for those with a healthy curiosity for history. The opportunities for more history, as well as art, are simply endless, beginning with the Barryton Historical Museum, the Civil War Monument, and the Anna Howard Shaw Sculpture—all the way to the Old Jail (Michigan Historic Site), Sawmill Point, Swede Hill Settlement, and Pioneer Press.

Keego Harbor in Oakland County

View on Map

A small community contained in less than one square mile, Keego Harbor is literally surrounded by sparkling lakes. As part of the Lakes Area that once served as a playground for Detroit residents, the city has gradually shifted from a place of summer cottages to a year-round home. The majority of residents who settle in Keego Harbor are avid boaters and water-sport enthusiasts who take full advantage of the exceptional terrain. Apartments and small cottages are still available, reflecting the community’s roots as a seasonal getaway. However, many lakeside cabins are being renovated for year-round use or being replaced by larger and more luxurious homes. The close proximity of West Bloomfield Township adds a number of advantages to life in Keego Harbor, underlined by the shared resources of a quality public school system.

Lake Orion in Oakland County

View on Map

Once characterized as rural and agricultural, the 27-lake region known as Orion Township continues to be discovered by quality builders who are carving out lovely residential communities and subdivisions. Many of these prime residential areas include common open space of wetlands and wooded acres. Perhaps the ultimate symbol of the area’s spirit of transition is the Haymakers Restaurant, a remarkable dining establishment that was converted from an old dairy barn and attracts a clientele from the far corners of Oakland County. The Village of Lake Orion still reflects the personality of its early years as a summer resort of charming cottages, although many of these cozy dwellings are now enlarged and converted to year-round homes. Picturesque centennial homes line the business district, alpine-style cottages grace the scenic peninsula known as Swiss Village, and the crisp architectural lines of contemporary split-levels often enjoy prime lakefront settings. Intensified interest in waterfront property and the lack of available land has created a common trend with lakeside communities: Luxurious new homes are completely replacing yesterday’s vintage cottages. The Indianwood Country Club located nearby has spurred another enclave of impressive new homes. While Lake Orion is the only incorporated village in the township, many other well-developed communities provide a distinctive flavor and enviable lifestyle.

Ortonville in Oakland County

View on Map

Ortonville is nestled in a scenic valley that was once covered with dense forests of oak, pine and marshlands that is now known as Brandon Township. But it will be remembered for its rolling farmlands, rippling lakes and streams, bubbling springs, artesian wells and winding roads. History is an important part of daily life in Ortonville and Brandon Township. In 1998, Ortonville celebrated its 150-year sesquicentennial. Ortonville has at least two known Indian burial grounds. The first roads were mere Indian trails from one lake to another. The main drag, M-15, crossed wet marshlands. From the Memorial Day Parade, Fourth of July fireworks, and Septemberfest to the Christmas in the Village celebration, residents of the Ortonville area join together year round for community enjoyment. Ortonville offers easy access to many State Parks, Mount Holly, Pine Knob, DTE Energy Music Theatre, The Palace of Auburn Hills, and Great Lakes Crossing. M-15 is a gateway to I-75 and I-69, great access to Detroit, Flint, and Lansing. Ortonville features thousands of acres of State Land that offers hiking, horse-back riding, cross-country skiing, boating, swimming and more. The nature that surrounds the area gives Ortonville that "up-north" feeling just an hour north of Detroit.

Oxford in Oakland County

View on Map

The semi-rural township of Oxford remains refreshingly undeveloped for an area that celebrated its 150-year sesquicentennial in 1987. While the village preserves its small-town look and charming atmosphere, the quiet neighborhoods and welcoming attitude make it ideal for family life. Others are often drawn to Oxford as a retreat from the hectic pace and pressures of urban living. Oxford public schools provide a wide range of opportunities, from a strong core curriculum to vocational/technical training and special programs. While abundant farmland and many gravel pits attest to the region’s agricultural roots, the township is poised to develop into a robust area with expansive plans for the future. Current development is primarily confined to single-family homes. However, the village shopping district provides a pleasing selection of goods and services, and small retailers are scattered throughout the area. Community members and civic leaders have created a 20-year masterplan for renovating and expanding the community, making use of vacant land and enhancing the quality of life in Oxford. Just 40 miles from the many attractions and advantages of Detroit, Oxford also offers easy access to rich recreational resources in the form of state parks, ski areas, swimming facilities, nature centers, marinas, and arenas that feature the Detroit Pistons and Detroit Lions. The outdoor summer music theatre of Pine Knob is also located nearby. The M-24 connection to Interstate 75 and SMART CONNECTOR bus service ensures efficient transportation to key area destinations.

Sylvan Lake in Oakland County

View on Map

The small community of Sylvan Lake is a fully-developed residential area of mature, modest homes. Lakeside activities, water sports, and beaches serve as the focal point of leisure activities for area residents, although local recreational amenities include four city parks, the Sylvan Community Center, tennis courts, and a basketball court. Sylvan Lake shares the legacy of the Lakes Area communities that were first established as summer retreats for Detroit residents who appreciated the fresh air, water resources, and tranquil surroundings. Smaller homes and seasonal cottages were the first structures, although many of these houses eventually became permanent, year-round residences as the decades passed and suburban sprawl rippled from the heart of the city into Oakland County. Considering the trend set by other lakeside communities, the future is likely to hold large-scale renovation and enlargement of existing homes or replacement of cottages with luxury waterfront estates. The public school districts in Pontiac and West Bloomfield Township provide a quality education for area youth. West Bloomfield is exceptionally well-developed in its regional amenities and recreational programs. Sylvan Lake is a consideration for those who desire the serenity and privacy of lakeside, small-town living in close proximity to lush state parks and first-rate metropolitan amenities.

Troy in Oakland County

Matching a robust economy with booming residential growth, Troy has shifted over three decades from a rural community to a vibrant and impressive suburb. The city’s “Golden Corridor” now features the landmark of the magnificent skywalk that connects the upscale shops of Somerset Collection with the equally posh shops of Somerset North. During the last two decades of the 20th century, centurions of sleek, modern office buildings emerged along Big Beaver, ranking Troy among metropolitan Detroit’s premier business districts. One of the most unique businesses is the Michigan Design Center, where design professionals can bring their clientele to browse through quiet, elegant salons.

Garden City in Wayne County

View on Map

Locally famous as the place where Henry and Clara Ford spent their honeymoon, Garden City is a residential suburb of Detroit that was settled as long ago as 1832 but was slow to achieve any substantial growth until the early 1920s. Garden City enjoyed its first population boom when it shifted into a desirable suburban community for automotive industry workers who wanted to have a large lot for planting a garden. Farmland was subdivided into home sites to provide enough space for families to raise a garden and still maintain a home within a short commute of the factories in and around the City of Detroit. “The Sun Parlor of Detroit” became the city’s motto, and today’s proliferation of trees, shrubbery, and gardens have matured to grace the cityscape with greenery, natural beauty, and a distinctive charm. Quick and easy access to Interstate 96 and Interstate 275 ensure easy commutes to key points throughout the metropolitan area. This fact, coupled with a regulation that prohibits the construction of buildings that are over two stories in height, has made the community attractive to a large population of retirees and young families. The spacious, wooded setting of the Garden City Park anchors the city's family oriented recreational amenities, which include batting cages, volleyball courts, a public swimming pool, community center, ice-skating rink, and four smaller neighborhood parks. Newcomers will find that the community spirit is strong in Garden City, and local athletic competition as well as special events and festivities draw crowds that include every age group. While some apartments and multifamily housing options are available, mature houses predominate throughout the quiet, tree shaded neighborhoods. The constant increase in school enrollment has spurred developers to build larger homes that harmonize well with the well kept modest bungalows of yesterday. The area seems to provide fertile ground for entrepreneurial genius. In fact, two retail giants began their operations here in Garden City: Mike Illitch launched his Little Caesars empire with a take-out restaurant in 1959, and Kmart opened its first department store that same year.

Popular pastimes include tennis, fishing, boating, water sports, and golfing. The first golf course on the island was laid out as long ago as 1899, although today’s golfers can choose from five luxurious, private country clubs and one municipal course. Boating enthusiasts may be more interested in joining a quality yacht club.
