"Milan – Home to the Milan Dragway"

The first time I visited Milan, it was to go to a race at the Milan Dragway. Now, I am definitely not much for races and would never bother to watch one on television, but being at the dragway is totally different. It is a laid back, party atmosphere with a whole lot of contagious energy!

My first impression of Milan was definitely a cozy one. There are a lot of two-story brick homes, a quaint downtown area and a really relaxed vibe. It feels like being up North, only without the lengthy drive and it’s not so secluded.

Milan is definitely a safe area. It is a great central location, close to Saline and Ann Arbor, so amenities, schools, hospitals and employment opportunities aren’t too hard to find. There are schools there and college students have their pick between some of the best, including the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University and even Monroe County Community College, if you are looking for something a little smaller.

There are a few really nice parks in and around the area, as well as Foodtown Shopping Center and some restaurants and bars, so you don’t have to drive into the large cities if you don’t want to. If you visit or move there, you will want to check our Fender’s Bar & Grill. It’s a cool little hangout of locals and some great food and drink specials.
  • Safe neighborhoods
  • Nice community
  • High traffic when there are races
