"Richmond – Hike the Macomb Orchard Trail"

Richmond seems to stay under the radar a lot. Since it is so close to Shelby Twp., Sterling Heights and even Rochester Hills, people tend to flock to these cities, but Richmond is really a hidden gem. It is especially desirable for someone who loves the outdoors.

Not only is Richmond home to Bailey Park, Beebe Street Memorial Park and Gierk Park, this is the city where you find the beginning to the 23.5-mile Macomb Orchard Trail. The parks here have tennis courts, baseball diamonds, soccer fields and even an outdoor swimming pool. This is really a fantastic place to have children.

The school district is small, but the closest college is in Clinton Twp. This is a fairly quiet city, and about the only time you would really deal with traffic is when people from surrounding areas come to enjoy the annual Richmond Good Old Days Festival. If you like demolition derby or if you have a car to register, you won’t want to miss this one.

There are a few family owned restaurants where you will find all the local residents. Ken’s Country Kitchen is the place to go for weekend breakfast while the Village Café is well-known for their beer battered chicken tenders.
Pros
  • Nature trails
  • Parks
  • Good school district
Cons
  • Surprisingly high crime rate
