"Berkley – The Best Place to go for the Woodward Dream Cruise"

Since Woodward borders the entire city, this is a hot place to be during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise. Although traffic in Berkley is hardly considered terrible, during this event, it is nearly impossible to get in, out or around the city. Although the cruise itself is the third Saturday in August, expect traffic jams for a good week. Berkley is considered a cozy area with an active downtown, tree-lined neighborhoods and a fantastic place to raise a family. The school system is great, and you can walk home from the park after the sun goes down and not feel panicked. The population is around 15,000, predominately Caucasian, made up of working or retired professionals.

Although there isn’t a highway right in your backyard, I-696 is close and traffic on Woodward moves pretty fast, so getting to work on time anywhere in the surrounding area isn’t a problem.

You don’t have to go far for great food or a good bar either. For as small as Berkley is, it offers a lot in this department. A few you should make a point to check out include Berkley Front, Blarney Stone Pub, Sweet Lorraine’s Café & Bar, Duggan’s and Amici’s, where you can find pizza in vegan and gluten-free options!
